Jap Zeros from WWII Plastic Models, Die Cast Models, Wood Model Kits and Mahogany Models of the Mitsubishi A6M Japanese Zero Fighter.

Japanese Zero, Mitsubishi A6M Zeros  model airplanes of the Jap zeros showing Japanese aircraft at their best, the Japanese Zero was the most well know of all Japanese aircraft.

The A6M Jap Zero is one of the most famous of the Japanese fighter airplanes.  This Japanese fighter airplane is one that attacked Pearl Harbor in WWII on Dec 7th, 1941.  This aircraft is one of the historic airplanes from Japan and would be a great addition to your historic airplane collections.  These Japanese airplanes out climbed, out gunned and out maneuvered the American aircraft.  However, the Jap Zero was built to be very light and agile.  To do this they didn't put self sealing tanks, armor around the tanks, pilot or engine and didn't build the aircraft to withstand the maximum aerodynamic forces.  This made the Zeros very easy to shoot down, as many American Pilots attest.  One famous battle was the Marianas Turkey Shoot.   This plane is most commonly called the Jap Zero.    ( Here for more Japanese Airplane Models )

Steven Spielberg's 
VHS Video
Movie Suggestion by Art Griggs
A young British boy's noble spirit allows him to survive the hardships of a Japanese prison camp in China during World War II.

Amazon.com essential video 
Roundly dismissed as one of Steven Spielberg's least successful efforts, this very underrated film poignantly follows the World War II adventures of young Jim (a brilliant Christian Bale), caught in the throes of the fall of China. What if you once had everything and lost it all  in an afternoon? What if you were only 12? Bale's transformation, from pampered British ruling-class child to an imprisoned, desperate,  nearly feral boy, is nothing short of stunning. Also stunning are exceptional sets, cinematography, and music (the last courtesy of John  Williams) that enhance author J.G. Ballard's and screenwriter Tom Stoppard's depiction of another, less familiar casualty of war.

Epic "coming of age" war drama from director Steven Spielberg follows a young British boy's harrowing experiences in 1940s Shanghai. Separated from his family during the Japanese invasion and thrown into a prison camp, the boy develops a friendship with a captured American. Christian Bale, John Malkovich, Miranda Richardson star. 152 min.

A6M2-N Floatplane Fighter
A Japanese 5th Air Wing fighter from the Aleutians campaign of 1942

Tony Weddel. The Rufe was born out of the Japanese Navy's need for a single-seat  fighter that could be used primarily from military installations on small Pacific Islands,  where it was impossible to build landing fields. Except for the addition of floats and some minor structural changes, it was almost identical to the Zero in design and  performance. Here, Rufes defend Japanese shipping from American B-25s and P-38s  during the Aleutian campaign.

Developed by the Japanese Navy to fly off I-400 and I-401 submarines, the Aichi M6A1 Seiran had floats for landing next to its sub and folding wings for compact storage.

The Japanese Navy used the Nakajima A6M2-N seaplane, an adaptation of the Mitsubishi Zero-fighter plane, throughout the war. It was named the "Rufe" by the Allies and served in both the North and South Pacific theaters from the Aleutian Islands to the Solomon's.

the A6M3 Imperial Japanese Navy's best-known fighter from the late stages of the Pacific War features recessed panel lines, Sakae radial engine

 the A6M2 Zero that, flown off the Akagi by Lt. Saburo Shindo, led the second wave attack on Pearl Harbor

Moments after releasing a torpedo at the Japanese carrier Akagi at the onset of the Battle of Midway, the B-26 Marauder Suzi-Q thunders down the Japanese carrier's flight deck, nearly grazing the bridge in an attempt to escape the gantlet of fire unleashed by the enemy surface fleet and swarming Zero fighters

Kyushu J7W1 Shinden Fighter PlaneThe Japanese WWII experimental canard interceptor the Kyushu J7W1 Shinden. Designed to intercept the hordes of US B-29 bombers pounding the Japanese mainland, this canard pusher prop aircraft might have made a difference if it was deployed in time. The IJNAF also proposed a jet version of this aircraft.

Developed by the IJN, Imperial Japanese Navy as a land based, short range interceptor, the J7W Shinden, "Magnificent Lightning", was designed for interceptor missions against the B-29 attacks on Japan. 

 

 

 

There was a simple pattern to the Allied codenames that were given to aircraft, they went as follows:  Males first names were given to fighters and reconnaissance seaplanes. Trainers were named after trees.  Gliders used bird names.  Bombers, flying boats, reconnaissance aircraft, and transport airplanes were given female names.   There was a simple list for manufacturers too.

Manufacturer Codes:

A   Aichi or North American
B   Boeing
C   Consolidated
D   Douglas
G   Hitachi or Grumman

H   Hiro or Hawker
He Hinkel
J    Nihon or Junkers
K   Kawanishi or Kinner
M   Mitshibishi

N   Nakajima
P   Nihon
S   Sasebo
Si  Showa
V   Vought  Sikorski

W  Watanabe  Kyushu
Y   Yokosuka
Z   Mizuno

When I first read this list it seemed like the complete guide to aircraft manufacturers, however there are a number of manufacturers that have been totally left out, such as Kawasaki.

Saburo's Surprise

Saburo's Surprise
Marii Chernev. In August 1942, Dauntless dive-bombers flown by Robert C. Shaw and Harold L. Jones off of the USS Enterprise near Tulgi were attacked by two A9M2 Zero fighters from Rabaul. The lead Zero was flown by Petty Officer Saburo Sakai, who sustained grievous injuries from the return fire from the SBD-3s. Though blinded in one eye, Sakai managed to fly more that 500 miles back to Rabaul. Print measures 25"x 18".
