- AIRFIX 1:72 MITSUBISHI A6M2B ZERO MODEL KIT
When the Japanese Zero first entered service in 1940, it was without doubt the most advanced naval fighter in the world and quickly earned a reputation as a ruthless dogfighter. Possessing exceptional manoeuvrability, the Zero quickly earned a reputation as a dogfighter and Allied pilots quickly learned to avoid a slow, turning fight with this beautifully balanced aircraft. As the fighter aircraft to beat in the Pacific, American pilots soon developed tactics that avoided playing into the hands of the Zero and began to score victories. As newer fighters began to enter service, the A6M Zero began to show its weaknesses, which were a lack of armour protection for the pilot and no self-sealing fuel tanks in the wing. Using their ?boom and zoom' hit and run tactics, the Americans finally began to get the measure of the feared Zero. Scale 1:72; Skill 1; Flying Hours 1; Number of Parts 47; Dimensions (mm) L126xW166. Suitable for ages 8+.
