[Flower of the beginning of the Pacific War]
--From the first battle on the Chinese front to the end of the Pacific War, the Zero Fighter continued to fight as the main fighter of the Japanese Navy.
――Among them, the 21st type was deployed mainly by the aircraft carrier task force as the first full-scale mass production type, following the 11th type that was operated by a small number as a local fighter.
――It has been improved so that both ends of the main wing can be folded by 50 cm to make it easier to handle in the aircraft carrier elevator, and it is equipped with a landing hook and a crucy radio direction finder, which are indispensable for carrier-based aircraft.
――The 21 type operated by a skilled crew has a cruising range of 3000 km or more and an amazing fighting ability that overturns the common wisdom of single-seat fighters in the beginning of the Pacific War such as the attack on Pearl Harbor, the Philippine invasion operation, and the Indian Ocean operation. Overwhelm Allied fighters by utilizing the heavy armament of 20mm machine guns.
――The brilliant activity created the Zero Fighter undefeated myth.
[Faithfully reproduce the characteristics of Type 21 in the engine and cockpit]
――The 21 type is said to have the beautiful proportions of the Zero Fighter, such as the 12m wide main wing and the smart engine cowl. In the kit, the features are reproduced in detail along with its appearance.
――The Nakajima [Sakae] Type 12 engine, which became the driving force for its high performance, faithfully reproduces the differences from the Type 52, such as the small reduction chamber, rear auxiliary equipment, and collective exhaust pipe.
――The engine support rack, oil tank, and fuel tank inside the fuselage are also highlights.
-The inside of the cockpit is not only reproduced with the same three-dimensional effect as the 52 type, but also modeled without leaving the equipment peculiar to the 21 type such as the 96 type sky No. 1 radio.
――In addition to the basic shape of the engine cowl, which consists of delicate lines, the expressive form created by the air intake at the bottom is surely captured and three-dimensionalized.
――Two types of parts are available for the folding part of the main wing tip, which is a feature of the 21st model. It is a replaceable type, and you can choose to unfold or fold it even after completion.
--The engine cowl is removable. You can observe the [Sakae] Type 12 engine even after assembly.
-The main landing gear pursues the fun of movement in addition to precise reproduction. Not only the pull-in mechanism but also the oleo part can be moved by metal parts.
