Mitsubishi A6M "Zeke"
Profile Fuselage with Built-up Wing
The Zeke or Zero was the most important aircraft in the Japanese Air and Naval Forces during World War II. It was almost undefeatable during the early years of the war. As Allied aircraft improved the Zero's dominance was diminished until it was relegated to the role of a kamikaze aircraft by the end of the war .

All of the planes in the War Bird Series feature a buildup wing and profile fuselage. Wings span 27" and have a wing area 120 square inches. These hot planes are designed for Norvel, TD, or Brodak type engines and come with a conversion to a Black Widow radial engine mount. The wing is a tongue and groove construction design which makes a strong, light weight wing that is almost warp proof. Parts are band sawed and laser cut. All planes come with decals, landing gear, wheels and all hardware. All kits feature FULL SIZE PLANS to ease construction.
These planes will fly stunt and are very fast, which would make them good combat models. 35' to 42' steel lines are recommended. Originally designed by Walt Musciano in 1962, these kits have been updates for 21st century flyers.
