Description

Details

The Japanese Navy ordered the NAKAJIMA A6M2-N seaplane an adaptation of the Mitsubishi Zero-fighter plane, in early 1940. The first delivery was made in December 1941 and a total of 320 were built before production ceased in 1943. It was named the "Rufe" by the Allies and served in both the north and south Pacific theatres from the Aleutian Islands to the Solomon’s. Its role was more defensive than offensive although it was well armed with two wing-mounted cannon and two machine guns in the top front of the engine cowling.

Guillow was founded in 1926 by a World War 1 US Navy aviator and is the world's largest manufacturer of balsa wood model airplane kits. They have an enviable reputation for producing quality kits with excellent building instructions and plans.

The 500 series (16½" wing span) of WW2 models is their most popular range and is suitable for ages 10 years and upwards. These easy building balsa airplane kits contain laser cut balsa parts, plastic cowls and canopies, decals, plastic prop, wheels, tissue and a 24-page model building booklet. Models are approximately 1:30 scale.

Each kit is supplied with a rubber band motor for powered flight but can also be adapted for gas powered control line flying with a .020 engine (not included).

These model construction kits have scale realism for the super detail fan and light weight for those who build and fly. Each model is a small but faithful replica of a well known airplane.

A great kit representing excellent value for money and hours of fun!

Requires adhesives and basic modelling tools to complete.
