Last of the Breed...1/48 Mitsubishi A6M8 Type 54, IJN
Last produced Zero type. Two A6M5c were converted and fitted with the stronger Kinsei engine to replace the no longer produced Sakae engine in April 1945. The M8 never made it to serial production. At least one of the two prototypes fell into US hands.
Added also pics showing the A6M8 together with the first one, the A6M1.
