Product Description

1/32 Mitsubishi A6M5 Zero Fighter w/LED Lighting & Sound (Ltd Re-Release Edition) by Tamiya. Ages 12+. Designed with the utmost realism, the progression in propeller speed coincides with changes in engine sound. From initial rotation to full-go, the peak of propeller rotation speed portrays the state of the Zero during the moment before take-off, at the point when fighter pilots confirmed engine condition by focusing all their attention on the Sakae 21's sound and vibration. The realistic sound and movement of this model stir the imagination and make it seem as if you are in the cockpit of a real Zero fighter.Using digital technology, Tamiya designers recorded the engine sound of the only remaining Sakae 21 engine, housed in a Mitsubishi A6M5 currently on display at the Planes of Fame Aviation Museum located outside Los Angeles California. The sound of this Sakae 21 engine, with its 1130hp maximum output and a 2-speed control mechanism was recorded with the latest in digital sound technology to be played from the speaker box of the model's display stand.
