Ask folks to name a World War II Japanese fighter. And they’ll inevitably pick the legendary Zero.
Now author Dariusz Karnas and illustrator Zygmunt Szeremeta handily recap the iconic Imperial Navy warplane’s most common variant in Mitsubishi A6M5 Model 52 Zero – 21st in MMP’s growing “Single” range.
Spanning just 24 pages, coverage provides 1:72- and 1:48-scale plans, period photos, detail shots, and tech-manual illustrations. The color main instrument panel is worth the price of admission.
Weathering your Zeke 52 undersurface? Reference that detailed image on page 7.
Color plates of a Nakajima-built A6M5 captured at Saipan in 1944 complete coverage.
With thanks to MMP for the review copy.
