Tamiya America, Inc 1/48 A6M2 Zero Fighter Type
In the attack of Port Darwin, Australia, from the Rabaul base, the Zero showed superior circling ability and overwhelmed the Britain's proud Spitfire in dogfights. The Spitfire was a fighter which had beaten the Messerschmitt Bf-109 of the German Air Force in dogfights by making the most of its proud circling ability. The Zeros which achieved these victories in the initial stage of the Pacific War were called Model 21, an improved version of the early Model 11 that showed activity over the Chinese continent. The wings of the Model 21 were designed to permit 50cm of each tip to fold upwards to facilitate carrier stowage. Paint colors needed: X-1 Black, X-2 White, X-4 Blue, X-7 Red, X-9 Brown, XF-24 Dark Grey, XF-56 Metallic Grey, XF-66 Light Grey, and XF-70 Dark Green.

Tamiya Models A6M2 Zero Fighter Model
N the summer of 1937 Japan started action against China and threw into the front a great number of the newest planes which Japan had created with their original ideas and technique. Concerning fighters in particular, Japan had abandoned biplane type which was counted as the common sense of the then world and already employed the Type 96 Carrier Fighter (96 Kansen) that Japan had produced on the basis of many pieces of new technique and ideas such as all-metal, internally braced low wing monoplane design and the engine cowling designed to reduce air resistance. 96 Kansens always successfully engaed with I-15 and I-16 fighters and SB-2 bombers of Russian make as well as Gladiator fighters of British make. The 96 Kansen appeared as a fighter having a speed as high as 450 km/h and superior maneuverability at the time when conventional fighters of Japan and other nations of the world had a maximum speed of 350 km/h, winning admiration in Japan and abroad. This overthrew the deepfooted view that foreign planes were superior to those of Japan. After the appearance of the 96 Kansen, the modernization of Japan's aircraft industry was rapidly promoted and original planes came to be born.

New Ray, WW II, 1:48 scale, Mitsubishi A6M
The Mitsubishi A6M "Zero" is a long-range fighter aircraft, manufactured by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, and operated by the Imperial Japanese Navy from 1940 to 1945. The A6M was designated as the Mitsubishi Navy Type 0 Carrier Fighter, or the Mitsubishi A6M Rei-sen. The A6M was usually referred to by its pilots as the "Reisen" (zero fighter), "0" being the last digit of the Imperial year 2600 (1940) when it entered service with the Imperial Navy. The official Allied reporting name was "Zeke", although the use of the name "Zero" was later commonly adopted by the Allies as well. When it was introduced early in World War II, the Zero was considered the most capable carrier-based fighter in the world, combining excellent maneuverability and very long range. The Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service ("IJNAS") also frequently used the type as a land-based fighter. In early combat operations, the Zero gained a legendary reputation as a dogfighter, achieving the outstanding kill ratio of 12 to 1, but by mid-1942 a combination of new tactics and the introduction of better equipment enabled the Allied pilots to engage the Zero on generally equal terms. By 1943, inherent design weaknesses and the failure to develop more powerful aircraft engines meant that the Zero became less effective again...

The A6M3 Type 22 was actually built after the clipped wing Type 32. Thanks to the additional power of the sake 21 engine over the previous Sakae 12, the sake 21 did not have the same fuel consumption as the earlier version. To add to that, the new engine was longer so the forward fuselage fuel tank had to be reduced in size. This meant that the Type 32 was decidedly down on range. Thanks to the clipped wing, it also did not have the ceiling or Rate of climb of the earlier A6M2 Type 21, though it was faster and did have a greater roll Rate. To counter that, the Type 22 reinstated the wing extension and also had increased fuel tankage added to the wings to make up for the thirstier engine and the loss of fuselage fuel stowage. Several Type 22S had long barrelled cannon fit into the wings at least one was field tested with wing mounted 30mm cannon. Though not built in the kind of numbers that the later Type 52 was, the Type 22 served well during the middle years of the War and was the Mount of many a jnaf ace.
