The Mitsubishi Heavy Industries in Japan designed and built these carrier based fighter planes for the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service, which in the early years of WWII were extremely successful in shooting down enemy planes. However as allied technology improved, the Mitsubishi Zero’s were outmatched, prompting the Japanese to utilise them for Kamikaze missions to devastating effect. The Metal Earth Mitsubishi Zero is perfect for someone with an interest in aeronautical or war history, an aviation buff, a pilot, or just as a beautiful object with the satisfaction of knowing you built it yourself!
The Metal Earth series are amazing 3D models to build from laser cut steel sheets.
We stock several flight-related items from the Metal Earth range. Why not collect them all? Incredibly detailed, these fascinating models are definitely a challenge to build. Care and patience are required, but the results are well worth the effort. Long-nosed pliers are also recommended (not included). This is one of the simpler models in our range, and takes about three quarters of an hour to complete.
Recommended for ages 14 and over. Due to their small size, Metal Earth models should be kept out of the reach of children under three years of age.
