Tamiya’s masterfully designed 1/32 scale model of the A6M5 Zero shipboard fighter, with all of its moveable parts and intricate detail, has now been taken to the next level. Tamiya is pleased to release their 1/32 scale model of the Mitsubishi A6M5 shipboard fighter that features realistic lights replicated with light emitting diodes, as well as propeller rotation coupled with synchronized engine sound.

A special control mechanism in the display stand enables simultaneous propeller rotation and engine sound to heighten the sense of this model’s realism. The engine sound synchronization and propeller rotation was recreated by referring to actual Zero fighter manuals.

Flicking the switch to the "ON" position will engage sound of inertia starter rotation and connection, followed by idling sound, followed by warm-up running sound of engine, and finally full-go sound. The change of the sound process has been precisely integrated with change in the propeller speed. Turning the switch off will cause engine sound to slowly wind down before finally stopping. Engine idling and warm-up running sounds may be continued.

From initial rotation to full-go, the peak of propeller rotation speed portrays the state of the Zero during the moment before take-off, at the point when fighter pilots confirmed engine condition by focusing all their attention on the Sakae 21's sound and vibration. The realistic movement and sound of this model stir the imagination and make it seem as if you’re in the cockpit of a real Zero fighter.

Using digital technology, Tamiya designers recorded the engine sound of the only remaining Sakae 21 engine, housed in a Mitsubishi A6M5 currently on display at the Planes of Fame Aviation Museum located outside Los Angeles California. The sound of this Sakae 21 engine, with its 2-speed control mechanism and 1130hp maximum output was recorded with the latest in digital sound technology to be played from the speaker box of the model's display stand. Now all the power of the Sakae 21 engine can now be heard in your very own living room!
