Aircraft model Mitsubishi Zero NEW TOOLING

 

When the Japanese Zero entered service in 1940, it was arguably the most advanced naval fighter in the world and quickly gained a reputation as a ruthless fighter.

In early engagements, the Zero proved so effective that pilots were able to post an incredible 12-to-1 win ratio against their opponents. As the Wehrmacht began its march through Europe in 1940, little attention was paid to developments in the Far East.

 

After years of rearmament and modernization, the Japanese Navy boasted some of the most advanced naval aircraft in the world in its inventory, including the superb Mitsubishi A6M Zero.

This long-range naval fighter would be at the forefront of Japan's expansionist ambitions throughout World War II, and at the outset of the war, it proved to be unrivaled in the Pacific region.

 

The Zero also quickly earned a reputation as a dogfighter, and Allied pilots quickly learned to avoid slow, turning combat with this beautifully balanced aircraft.

American pilots quickly developed tactics that avoided playing into the Zero's hands and began to win victories. As new fighters entered service, the A6M Zero began to show its weaknesses, namely a lack of armor protection for the pilot and the absence of self-sealing fuel tanks in the wing.

With their "boom and zoom" strike and execution tactics, the Americans finally began to get the measure of the dreaded Zero.

 

About the model:

With this classic model possessing exceptional maneuverability, no collection is complete without the A6M Zero.

This model measures 126mm, making it perfect for both experienced and younger collectors.



Difficulty : 1 (1 = easy, 2 = medium, 3 = hard, 4 = very difficult, 5 = expert)

 


Scale : 1:72
The 1:72 scale is ideal for model planes, military models and figurines. This means that the model is 72 times smaller than the actual object.

For example, a model 1:72 scale airplane measures8 inches / 20cm in length if the real object measures 14.4 m (1440 cm).

The figurines in the 1:72 scale measure about 1 inch / 2.5cm high.

Es más bonito en el dibujo de fuera de la caja :) Necesitas comprar la pintura aparte para que quede como en la foto y eso no lo dice en ninguna parte. Compras, pagas gastos de envío y luego tendrías que volverlos a pagar si quieres pintarlo. Eso me parece muy mal.
