Break the "Weight Barrier"
that has existed between modelers and great flying R/C warbirds for so long!!
Our Giant-Scale sport-scale A6M3 Zero R/C model kit has a
wingspan of 82", wing area of 1550 square inches, and a typical finished
weight of just 15 to 18 pounds using a gas engine, giving the
lightest wing loading and the best flying and landing characteristics of any
Zero model sold today!
We are pleased and proud to announce
that Universal Studios chose to use some of our Jack
Devine Zeros in
the advertising of their blockbuster movie "PEARL
With the Jack Devine A6M3 Zero model,
much of the work has already been done for you. Imagine opening the box and
finding a fully-formed foam frame waiting there for you! You won't have to
imagine what your model is going to look like framed up. The frame is
done, the shape is already complete! All that's left to do is follow the
easy video instructions for capping, sheeting, and installing some hard points
like a firewall and landing gear blocks, and your model is ready for gear and
finish! Once you look at it you'll realize with a Warbird this size just
how quickly you can be in the air compared to a stick-built model. There's
just no comparison in building time, a Jack Devine model builds faster every time!
The Mitsubishi Zero, or A6M3, was the
primary fighter used by the Japanese Forces throughout WW II. Both fierce
and agile, the Zero's reign of terror grew to epic proportions, finally
encompassing most of the south Pacific. The Japanese had paid close
attention to the early years of the Golden Age Racers, and had incorporated many
of the innovations from those racers into the Zero. Until such time as
America was able to introduce faster, tougher, nimbler, and more powerful
warbirds with newer innovations from the later years of racing, the Zero's
supremacy was essentially unchallenged. Even when Allied Air Forces
started taking back the skies and the Japanese stronghold on the South Pacific
began to crumble, the pilots of these Zeros fought to the death. Often
provided enough fuel for only a one-way trip and some fighting, they were
ordered to perform the Kamikaze maneuver and dive their Zeros into the ships of
the American fleet, which most pilots willingly did for the glory of the
Japanese Empire. This desperate attempt to to regain superiority may have been
futile, but often the results were devastating to Allied ships. Here at
the turn of the century, there are
only a very few examples of the Japanese Zero left in the entire world, due to
the orders to melt ALL instruments of war (including Zeros) down, which were laid out in the unconditional
surrender of the Japanese. Most "Zeros" as we know them are
Hollywood Zeros, created by modifying American AT-6 Texans for use in Hollywood
The Zero is an excellent choice for
modelers who want to fly a Warbird, because of the generous wing area of the original
Zero. This also makes the Jack Devine A6M3 Zero a terrific scale
endeavor, as our foam-core technology combines lightness with light wing
loading, allowing a lot of scale additions! That's easy to see when you
look at Don Hopper's smile as he shows off his beautiful Jack Devine Zero model above!
It is designed and cut to very
scale dimensions, so this sport-scale giant will not only fly well, it's a real
eye-catcher with its true-to-scale silhouette. You just can't help but
look good at the field!
It comes with our instructional video to help you
build it easily. The video guides you through the
capping and sheeting of all foam pieces, and the gearing up for hardware,
mounts, etc. Are you wondering about the processes involved? This
website also has building articles filled with a variety of tips and techniques
to help answer many of your construction questions, both now and after you start
building your Jack Devine model!
wings have pre-cut control surfaces, servo pockets, and wire channels.
Included is all of the balsa you will need for sheeting, a generous hardware package consisting of hardware, landing
gear, and a fiberglass cowling and Lexan canopy are included as well. Cutting for retracts
is optional. Uses Robart Retracts Model #622 with 4"wheels.
