1/48 SCALE NAKAJIMA A6M2-N (RUFE)

Length: 210.5 mm. Image shows painted and assembled kit.

The Type 2 floatplane fighter, otherwise known as the A6M2-N (Allied reporting name "Rufe"), was created to provide reconnaissance and defense for remote Japanese outposts such as the Aleutian Islands in WWII. It was essentially a normal A6M2 Zero which had its landing gear replaced with floats. This kit accurately depicts this unique aircraft and features plenty of engine and cockpit detail. The canopy may be assembled in either open or closed position and parts for the beaching trolley are also included. The kit also comes with two pilot figures and seven marking options.
