At its introduction in 1940, the Zero was the most devastatingly effective aircraft in the air. Its long range and incredible performance made it virtually untouchable in combat with contemporary aircraft. With speed and maneuverability unmatched by anything in the sky, the Zero utterly dominated its enemies early in WWII.
This Top Flite model is a tribute to these legendary aircraft. It's designed to be scale in appearance and performance. It maintains ease of flight and good maneuverability on the ground with a thick airfoil, large wing and wide stance landing gear. Make no mistake, this Zero is no trainer. It's a sleek bird with maneuverability worthy of its legendary namesake. The Zero is sure to draw crowds at the airfield and give you hundreds of hours of high-octane thrills.
A large radio compartment makes it easy to install your radio and access other on-board equipment.
A molded fiberglass cowling includes many scale details including stealth mounted gun ports. An included aluminum 2-bladed spinner adds to the convenience of the model. A 3-blade spinner, shown, is available separately.
Plenty of extraordinary details can be found in the Zero's cockpit, including recessed gauges, control stick, a pilot's seat and side panels. (Pilot not included).
The Zero's split flaps are historically accurate and they're also prehinged for faster assembly.
A smooth molded fiberglass tail cone cleans up the lines of the Zero and further improves the scale authenticity of the aircraft.
Japanese pilots frequently used external fuel tanks to get extra miles out of their Zeros. For modelers that want to go the extra mile, a scale drop tank is available separately. This piece adds to the realism of the fighter and lets you simulate tank drops!
Robart Retracts add scale realism to your Zero. Both pneumatic and electric versions are available. Check the Product Recommendations for full details. Two-piece landing gear covers are included in the kit.
Special attention has been paid to every piece of the Zero to ensure that it is not only realistic and scale, but also convenient. The scale antenna mast is magnetically attached for easy removal prior to transportation and the greenhouse canopy is meticulously designed to resemble the full-scale version in every detail.
Your Zero is pre-covered in Monokote for the most accurate trim scheme possible.
