This is an injection-plastic aircraft model kit.
Fine Molds and Model Graphix Magazine have teamed up to offer a fantastic new 1/72-scale injection-molded plastic kit of the A6M2 Type 21 Zero Fighter, included as a two-part special in the November and December issues of Model Graphix. The November issue includes the fuselage and cockpit parts, with the December issue containing the wings and other details. The instructions for each phase of assembly are included in the appropriate issue.
HobbyLink Japan is proud to offer BOTH issues together as a single set, bringing you the full Zero kit with all instructions, plus the two issues of the magazine. Model Graphix is Japan's most well-rounded hobby magazine, full of articles on all modeling genres including aircraft, figures, science fiction, cars, ships, and more, featuring excellent photography throughout. All text is in Japanese.
Fine Molds' new kit is undoubtedly the finest offering of the Zero in 1/72 scale, with exquisite and authentic detail throughout. Flaps and ailerons are molded separately, as are the cowl flaps (your choice of open or closed!). The canopy is offered as either a one-piece closed affair or a three-piece assembly to build it in the open position. The excellent detail of the cockpit almost demands an open canopy! The engine and landing gear feature fantastic details, and the kit will include optional parts for the propeller's spinner, wing gun ports, and underwing gun access panels. Markings are included for three versions: famed Zero ace Saburo Sakai's V-103 aircraft, Tetsuzo Iwamoto's EII-I02 aircraft based on the IJN aircraft carrier Zuikaku, and an aircraft from the 263rd Squadron.
This excellent Zero kit from Fine Molds will only be offered as a premium included with these two issues of Model Graphix (the issues are also sold separately if you prefer, linked below), and will not be offered alone as a separate kit. Act fast, because when they're gone, they're gone!
