Diels Engineering Inc. announces a new laser cut kit of the Japanese Mitsubishi A6M Zero. It is about 50% converting the old Kit #18 and 50% revised design and what I think are several improvements. The old kit has been out of production for a few years and was based on the plan in the Model Builder book Flying Scale Models from WWII. The original plan was by Bob Peck. I purchased rights from Model Builder Magazine to market the kits and plans of this model.

Here are some of the features of the Zero kit. See the complete details on my August 15, 2018 Blog.

1. I redrew the basic original drawing into CAD. II now has 3 separate wing shapes to fit the following A6M versions the A6M1, A6M2, and A6M2b, and A6M3-22 had 12 meter wingspans, and the A6M5-52 wing which was the one on the original drawing scaled 11 meters. The third wing is also a scaled 11 meter wing of the A6M3-32 Hamp wing with the almost squared off wing tips.So this kit has drawings for the three basic wings. You can build any one of 5 or 6 versions.

2. The original design had most of its formers and wing ribs made from 1/32" thick balsa. It now will give you a choice. It has the formers and ribs on both 1/32" and 1/16" thick balsa.

3. I revised the construction of the fuselage to make it so that the builder doesn't need any building board. You still need the board for the wings, stab, and rudder. I call the design the Align-O-Tab Comet style design. You assemble it in the air using somewhat inter locking pieces to assure the parts all fit together properly.

4. Modified the Rudder a bit. Revised the Stab design because it was too flimsy. Revised the fuselage/wing attachment to allow more room for a larger rubber motor.

5. A few other minor tweaks.

6. The kit has four sheets of plans (18 "x 24") one of which is the original printwood kit plan.

7. The kit will contain four sheets of laser cut parts. Included on the parts sheets are also some assembly gauges to assure parts alignment during construction.
