Jim Ryan's 1/14 scale Mitsubishi A6M Zero fighter model as featured in the November, 2005 issue of Model Airplane News. The fuselage is balsa and ply construction and is assembled over an internal disposable crutch. The wing uses foam cores sheeted with 1/32 balsa sheet. While originally designed for Speed 400 power, the Zero will fly well with any 400 class brushless motor.
The short kit includes laser-cut balsa and plywood parts, a vacuum-formed canopy, and full-size printed plans. The cowl is built-up using wood parts included in the short kit. As with all our Jim Ryan kits, wings are not included - you can cut wings from foam using templates included on the plans or you can order them pre-cut from from Eureka Aircraft. See the Information tab for a link and for tips on building foam wings.
