Revell-Monogram Aircraft 1/48 A6M5 Zero Japanese Fighter Kit
When the Zero was designed, pilot survivability was not forefront in the minds of its creators. Speed, armament, maneuverability-all of these characteristics were at the absolute peak of their development, but the Zero's lack of armor made it extremely vulnerable to return fire. As losses mounted, Japan simply ran out of trained pilots leaving the aeronautic engineering marvels that were the Zero firmly on the ground. Kit features a seated pilot figure, rotating prop and centerline drop tank.
