    Hi,
    here in Italy are advertising this all metal Zero fighter kit
    Zero Fighter - DeAgostini
    Unfortunately this advert is in Italian only but if you look at the pictures and the video you can get an idea of it.
    It's sold divided into 100 issues along over two years of time.
    The advertiser, DeAgostini, is book publisher not a kit maker and this model it's too large and too expensive for me (over 1,000 Euros) but I'm curious to know if anybody knows who builds this kit, just to understand how historically correct it could be.
    Cheers
    Alberto

    It is an A6M2 Zero in the markings of Lt. Saburo Shindo Buntaicho or Squadron leader of the second Wave fighter escort from the Aircraft carrier AKAGI, Dec. 7th 1941....looks reasonably accurate from what I see....
