"Hasagawa 1/32 A6M5c Zero"
Lynn ostler (Sandy Utah)
I am building this kit at the moment and It has been a beautiful build. I have had zero problem with fit on this kit. I don't know what problems the other reviewer had with this kit, but I am having no issues at all with recommending this kit at all. I think that if you take your time and dry fit this kit goes together wonderfully. I have found the detail to be very good. The cockpit is very nice. the detail on the out side of the kit is recessed and very fine and crisp. The pilot figure is wonderful, but I don't intend to have him in my aircraft. The engine detail is good and I think that you can add the right extras to bring it into the fore front of model engines. The structure of the kit is robust and sturdy. It is a solid good kit. If I can figure out how to do it I will post some pictures of the finished model on the store page when finished. So, if you are a fan of the aircraft of Japan, I would say that for the price this is an amazing kit. Like all Hasagawa kits it is worth the time and effort to put into your collection.

"Poor 1/32 scale Zero model"
darrelrwilder
I've build at least 6 1/48 scale Hasegawa Zeros and they've all been great - good fit, easy to assemble, accurate, and well-detailed. That is why I was absolutely shocked by the poor fit, terrible and inaccurate assembly instructions, and awful molded detail of this model in 1/32 scale. I had to look that the box several times to really convince myself this was a Hasegawa model. Even though the Tamiya versions are several times more expensive, I'd have to recommend them if you really want a satisfactory 1/32 Zero.

Information

The Mitsubishi A6M5c Type 52 "Zero" was an upgraded version of the Zero fighter developed in an attempt to close the performance gap between the new American fighters such as the Hellcat and Corsair. The aircraft had a 15mph increase in top speed over the earlier version plus improvements in armor and armament. Over 6,000 of the Type 52 Zero were produced in the closing 2 years of the war when the aircraft was the Japanese Navy's primary fighter.
