The A6M2 Zero is an unmistakable Japanese aircraft that fought valiantly during the Second World War. In the beginning, this updated Zero model easily outmaneuvered other fighter planes with its powerful fourteen cylinder Nakajima Sakae engine and surpassed all specifications belonging to the older model. In the eyes of the opposing side, the Zero was a terrifying plane that was a nimble but formidable opponent. Armed with neck breaking speed and an assortment of weapons like machine guns and cannons, the Zero was unparalleled until the arrival of new American-produced planes. Towards the end of the war, Japanese pilots used the Zero in kamikaze tactics to annihilate warships and destroy enemy troops.
This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
