The Hellcat's most formidable foe.
The introduction of the A6M5 Zero Type 52 signaled a series of changes for one of WWII's most famous fighters - all of which were required in order to effectively take on the F6F Hellcat and the F4U Corsair. An improved exhaust system helped increase thrust and enhanced the roll rate for all models. A6M5c variants also added thicker, protective armored glass for the windshield and armor plating behind the pilot. Weapons modifications included three .51 inch guns, two 20 mm Type 99-II guns and storage for a 250 kg bomb. This limited edition kit features new resin cowling parts.
