No-one builds model aeroplanes these days out of necessity, they do it because they want to, they do it for the joy of building and the immeasurable satisfaction of creating something tangible, individual and desirable from simple raw materials. For many the process of assembling the models they fly underpins their hobby in a way that no ARTF can ever replicate. For these sturdy traditionalists Seagull has introduced a range of Master Edition kits that offer builders the opportunity to benefit from its ARTF design and development skills but with the fun bit – the build – still to do. This A6M2 Zero is just such a kit and for those who crave a bit of balsa bashing in their spare time it’s a true gift.
Lift the lid of the very full box and not only will your senses be excited by the alluring aroma of freshly cut balsa, you’ll be genuinely impressed by the quality of the parts and the overall completeness of the package. From the huge folded full-size plan, through the 84-page step-by-step instruction manual and moulded components to the comprehensive hardware pack, scale accessories and decal sheet, this is a builder’s delight through and through. Take a look at what’s included, consider your colour scheme and take this golden opportunity to create a one-off model of the formidable Japanese fighter.
