Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine This isnít the first aircraft kit to grace the pages of Four Small Wheels but itís certainly the most detailed and is one of the most impressive kits weíve ever seen of any subject. Mitsubishiís ďZeroĒ was described by an American engineer as being built like a fine watch and itís a watch-makerís finesse that we see in this kit. Finely cast metal is included for the engine parts, cockpit bulkheads, fuel tanks, armament and undercarriage but the vast bulk of this kit is made up of incredibly fine photo-etch to create a very impressive fuselage frame with all of the workings visible within. The instructions run to thirty sides of A3, all containing excellent CAD images and grouped to make sub structures, though all text is in Japanese and weíve not managed to identify any colour guidance. That said, the makerís test shots show all of the parts in the raw and should you wish to detail paint the mechanical parts, there are plenty of reference sources out there. This is definitely not a kit for the faint hearted but with care, attention and a lot of time, it will build into a stunning piece of art.
State of the art large scale kits using resin, white metal, photo-etch and CNC machined aluminium. Many kits are built onto a solid aluminium monocoque. For the more experienced builder. End result stunning. Also a selected range of excellent accessory parts for use with resin and plastic kits. Made in Japan.
