The most famous Japanese fighter aircraft of World War Two, the Japanese Zero for sale by Mitsubishi, officially the A6M, was the most advanced aircraft carrier fighter in the world when it was introduced.

The strength of the Japanese Zero for sale was its ability to out turn its early war opponents at slower speeds in level flight. It had greater range and was also able to out climb most of its early war years adversaries.

Only two original aircraft still fly. One performs in air shows and displays at the Planes of Fame Museum in Chino, CA. The other is with the Confederate Air Force in Midland, TX.

By the end of the War, Japan had built the Japanese Zero for sale in greater quantities than any other type of aircraft. Counting all types of the aircraft, including fighters, sea planes and trainers, a total of 10,938 were produced.

We received the following email from Joe Pepper reviewing the building and flying of his Japanese Zero for sale from VQ Warbirds:

"The moment I opened the sturdy carton the Japanese Zero for sale from VQ Warbirds was delivered in, I liked it.  It arrived in excellent condition. The covering only needed a little heating to shrink it back into shape. The first thing I noticed was the great job done making the model look realistic. Everything was well protected for shipment. The instructions are clear and very complete.

I decided that my airplanes would look best with retracts. The retracts available from VQ Warbirds are made for their Japanese Zero for sale and are the easiest to install. Other retracts may not be so easy, so I highly recommend the ones from VQ.

All the wooden parts are cleanly cut and perfectly fit. The elevators, ailerons and rudder come already attached to the aircraft. There is a battery box in front, a nice touch. The engine mount is easily affixed to the airplane using the templates and alignment pieces.

With everything together it was time to fly! The Japanese Zero for sale from VQ Warbirds flys fast, does every maneuver a real fighter pilot would have been proud of, and lands easily. I highly recommend it."
