Our Price: US$36.49
Hasegawa has delivered a nicely detailed kit of the Mitsubishi A6M Zero Fighter with the ST4 A6M5c Mitsubishi Zero Fighter Type 52. This classic 1/32 scale has a straight-forward design, crisp fine surface textures, decent detail, fuss-free, and with no gimmicks. This is a highly recommended model and should not present any obstacles even to novice modellers.

The Mitsubishi A6M "Zero" is a long-range fighter aircraft, manufactured by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, and operated by the Imperial Japanese Navy from 1940 to 1945. The A6M was designated as the Mitsubishi Navy Type 0 Carrier Fighter, or the Mitsubishi A6M Rei-sen. The A6M was usually referred to by its pilots as the "Reisen" (zero fighter), "0" being the last digit of the Imperial year 2600 (1940) when it entered service with the Imperial Navy. The official Allied reporting name was "Zeke", although the use of the name "Zero" was later commonly adopted by the Allies as well.

The variant A6M5 Model 52 was developed to again shorten the wings to increase speed and dispense with the folding wing mechanism. In addition, ailerons, aileron trim tab and flaps were revised.
