Hobby Master 1:48 Air Power Series Diecast Model

Mitsubishi A6M2b Zero / Zeke – “AI-155”, LCDR Shigeru Itaya, First Wave Fighter Leader, IJN aircraft carrier Akagi, December 7, 1941 (Pearl Harbor attack)

1:48 Scale.  Length: 7.5”.  Wingspan: 9.75"



On December 7, 1941 the overall flight leader of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii was LCDR Shigeru Itaya. His aircraft was an A6M2 Model 21 Type 0 “AI-155” launched from the IJN carrier Akagi along with 8 other Zeros to act as escorts for Vals from the carrier Shokaku. At 07:57 Itaya’s unit strafed John Rodgers Field and 3 minutes later strafed Hickam Field with each aircraft making three passes. Itaya managed to shoot an arriving B-17 and was credited with an aerial victory.

The Mitsubishi A6M Zero was a fighter aircraft used by the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service (IJNAS) from 1940 until 1945. The origin of its official designation was that "A" signified a fighter and "6" for the sixth model built by Mitsubishi "M". The A6M was usually referred to by the Allies as the "Zero" – a designation that was frequently misapplied to other Japanese fighters, such as the Nakajima Ki-43, as well as other codenames and nicknames, including "Zeke", "Hamp" and "Hap". First flown in April, 1939, the A6M Zero-Sen was the Allies' main opponent in the Pacific and the most famous symbol of Japanese air power during World War II.
