A6M5 Zero
About this creation











This is my Lego version of the A6M5 Zero. I really like the way it came out although I think it would look better if there were not so many studs but other then that I like it. As you may have noticed, I decided to do the A6M5 aka the army version of the plane. I thought that it would be cool to do it in the army color scheme because not that many people have built zeros in green. Anyway I would like to give credit to John Lamarck because I sort of took his idea for the wheel pants and the canopy, THANKS JOHN!...................well I hope you like it and please review............also i will be uploading an F4U CORSAIR SOON SO WATCH THIS SPACE...




A Brief History of the A6M Zero

The Mitsubishi A6M Zero ("A" for fighter, 6th model, "M" for Mitsubishi) was a lightweight, carrier-based fighter aircraft employed by the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service from 1940 to 1945. Its history mirrored the fortunes of Imperial Japan in World War II. At the time it was introduced, the Mitsubishi A6M was the best carrier-based fighter plane in the world and was greatly feared by Allied pilots. By 1942, thanks to the evolution of new tactics and techniques, Allied pilots were able to engage the Zero on more equal terms. By 1943, American and British manufacturers were producing fighters with greater firepower, armor, and speed and approaching the Zero's maneuverability. By 1944, the Mitsubishi A6M was outdated but remained in production. In shifting priorities during the final years of the War in the Pacific, the Zero was utilized in kamikaze operations.

Funny story here. I was just playing a WWII fighter simulation game, and I was just about to start working on a model fighter plane from WWII, and when I come onto MOCpages, there's a Zero as the moc of the day! Awesome model. I like the landing gear. Very realistic.

I respectfully disagree with John who reviewed below, the studs give a riveted feel to it and I find beauty in creations with studs rather than with studless ones.

Hi David, that's a very good "zero". I like the way you build the canopy. I give you 4 stars because i think you should remove these side studs and you could improve the wings shape (a little longer for example). Despite some details, this is a good design.

Nice job! I think the tail is a teeny bit too small, and there's a few other itty-bitty things, but overall it's great! Looking forward to the Corsair:-) -- -- Michael

I love it! You got the shape almost perfect. I think it odd that people are building lego's and dont like studs. Thats what legos are! a lego without studs is like a lego that isn't there! Jack Ford

Really creative use of legos. I love the cockpit design alot, and the overall design is very realistic.
