Thread: Mitsubishi F1M2 Zero Type "Observer"

  1. #1

    Default Mitsubishi F1M2 Zero Type "Observer"

    The Mitsubishi F1M saw duty as a seaplane carrier-based reconnaissance plane throughout World War II. Known as "Pete" in the Allied code, gradually equipped most of the larger units of the Japanese Navy. The very detailed model is based on a 1/48 kit by Hasegawa with a lot of photoetched parts by Eduard. "The work is in progress"...

    Hi Nepe, just about Imperial Japanese Aircraft , above all the observer biplane, have a high and long stick. In the original image you can see the cockpit of a "Zero".

    I guess Japanese pilots were not very tall...

    I do not know ... Then we should ask to the designers and builders of Japanese aircraft.
