"Great little kit"
This was a nice cheap little kit. The parts are pretty small so they can be a little tough for some people. The instructions were very easy to follow, and all of the pieces fit together pretty well. There is very little flash on the parts that needs to be cleaned up. This is a great plane for beginners and experienced modelers. It is cheap, so not a lot of money will be lost if a mistake is made.

"A quick build kit perfect for air combat diorama"
So much potential with this kit. I plan on having it chased by a corsair in a dog fight scene I am building.

"Very nice"
jclemente1980 (Coimbra, Portugal)
These new mould Airfix model kits are simply astonishing Everything fits, it almost doesn't need glue. The Zero was a great plane, even if it didn't had good armour... It was fast, agile, and no rival to the p-40, as it surpassed it without much effort. we have a nice view of the radial engine, good cockpit detail, landing gear wells... simply perfect

"Amazing updated kit"
First off, this is an updated kit. If you see photos of the model with the green and grey paint job and the number 34 under the wing, that's the old style. The new version is IJN grey all over with red and beige fuselage stripes. I've built four of these kits, and I've used it for a beginning model class. It has the perfect mix of value, quality and detail. The sprues on all of the kits I've done were very clean. There was minimal flash, and the pieces fit together beautifully. There was very little sanding or puttying required. The detail is about as good as you can get without adding photo etch parts. One neat thing about the kit is the variety of options. The kit provides parts for landing gear either up or down, wingtips extended or folded, etc. Unfortunately the canopy doesn't open, but if you're super duper careful, you can cut it to the open position with a sharp hobby knife. This is a great kit for beginners (I had an 8 year old build one in my class) or experts given its forgiving nature and loads of detail and potential.
