Product Description

First flight was on 1 April 1939 and combat trials were concluded in July 1940 with 15 pre-production A6M2's sent to two squadrons by the end of the month. These aircraft had folding wing tips to accommodate aircraft carrier elevators, and were the ones first seen by Gen. Chennault in China, and at Pearl Harbor in December 1941. Although the A6M2 met or exceeded original design specifications, modifications were taking place at the Mitsubishi factory to improve roll rate, speed up handling aboard carriers, and utilize the uprated Sakae 21, 1,130 hp engine. The first A6M3 type 32 (code named HAMP) took to the air on 15 July 1941 with production beginning in April 42. A total of 343 aircraft were produced by August 43, when the type 52 A6M5 began production.

Another of my favy enemy planes
By reddog30110 October 6, 2013
Love the Japanese zeros. Was one of the fastest japanese planes of its era. Excellent detail on this kit. I hung this one in air used a P-51D as a arial combat scenario. Was a awesome addition to my WWII collection. Also used a Japanese figurine set for when i set it on shelf for ground display. Very nice kit.

By Miguel G.T April 6, 2015
This plane is top quality as expected from Tamiya. The fitting is perfect and the detail is pretty good. The decals are very nice too. I totally recommend this plane to beginners for its cheap price and easy assembly.

Great Tamiya Quality on a Classic
By Tommy July 26, 2015
If you're planning on building any WWII model planes, then the Zero Fighter is a must buy. It's a classic WWII plane along with the Mustangs and whatnot. Being a Tamiya kit, the fitting and molding is excellent. The few things that needed work can easily be sanded out with a few strokes of sandpaper. I definitely recommend this plane.
