Description Extended Information
 
Armour Collection B11E068 Imperial Japanese Navy Mitsubishi A6M2 Model 21 Riesen "Zero" Fighter - Tetsuzo Iwamoto, 253rd Fighter Group (1:48 Scale) "We have resolved to endure the unendurable and suffer what is insufferable."
- Japanese Emperor Hirohito speaking to the Japanese people after the atomic bombings, August 1945

The Mitsubishi A6M Zero was a light-weight carrier-based fighter aircraft employed by the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service from 1940 to 1945.

It is universally known as Zero from its Japanese Navy designation, Type 0 Carrier Fighter (Rei shiki Kanjo sentoki), taken from the last digit of the Imperial year 2600 (1940), when it entered service. In Japan it was unofficially referred to as both Rei-sen and Zero-sen. The official Allied code name was Zeke (Hamp for the A6M3 model 32 variant); while this was in keeping with standard practice of giving boys' names to fighters, it is not definitively known if this was chosen for its similarity to "Zero".

Pictured here is a 1:48 scale replica of an A6M2 Model 21 variant of the Zero which was flown by the Imperial Japanese Navy's 253rd Fighter Group and flown by Tetsuzo Iwamoto. Sold Out!
