Mitsubishi A6M Zero
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 (零式艦上戦闘機 rei-shiki-kanjō-sentōki?), 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.

This model is brilliant! the detail is great for the scale. And it represents the profile and shilouette of the aircraft perfectly, the only critic I have is there was some minor miscasting on the left side of the the rudder i had to file off ( took all of 3 seconds each plane) it is a really picocomplaint given how fantastic this model is otherwise, but its something to know. worth your money for sure! It says a lot when this sort of tiny issue is the only compaint I’ve managed to find on this order of 8 packs of diffrent models.
