When it was introduced early in World War II, the Zero was considered the most capable carrier-based fighter in the world, combining excellent maneuverability and very long range. In early combat operations, the Zero gained a legendary reputation as a dogfighter, achieving the outstanding kill ratio of 12 to 1, but by mid-1942 a combination of new tactics and the introduction of better equipment enabled the Allied pilots to engage the Zero on more equal terms.
By 1943, inherent design weaknesses and the failure to develop more powerful aircraft engines meant that the Zero became less effective against newer enemy fighters that possessed greater firepower, armor, and speed, and approached the Zero's maneuverability. Although the Mitsubishi A6M was outdated by 1944, it was never totally supplanted by the newer Japanese aircraft types. During the final years of the War in the Pacific, the Zero was used in kamikaze operations. In the course of the war, more Zeros were built than any other Japanese aircraft.
Our Mitsubishi Zero Fighter comes almost ready to fly, meaning most everything on the airplane is built with minimal assembly required. This sport scale model is meant to be the everyday warbird. Enough realistic detail that it looks right but without the complexity of a more scale model. This is your everyday warbird. Just a few evenings of work and you'll be out flying. The durable hand laid fiberglass fuselage is durable though lightweight enough to produce a great flying model.
