The Mitsubishi A6M "Zero" is a long-range fighter aircraft, manufactured by Mitsubishi Aircraft Company, a part of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, and operated by the Imperial Japanese Navy from 1940 to 1945. The A6M was designated as the Mitsubishi Navy Type 0 carrier fighte, or the Mitsubishi A6M Rei-sen. The A6M was usually referred to by its pilots as the "Reisen" (zero fighter), "0" being the last digit of the imperial year 2600 (1940) when it entered service with the Imperial Navy. The official Allied reporting name was "Zeke", although the use of the name "Zero" was later adopted by the Allies as well.

This set is clearly in the category “plug and play” !
Just two pieces of fine casting pesin are in the transparent packaging , ready with very little preparation to improve the look of a model of a Mitsubishi A6M5c Zero fighter by Hasegawa .

All you need to do is to cut the kit’s parts , cleaning with a sharp modelling knife then sanding the resin parts and you are ready for placement the new ailerons , so simple !
So , lets look what exactly provides CMK in this set :
*  Two (one set) of resin ailerons for the A6M5c Zero .
*  Fine casting resin , free of bubbles , scratches or crooked .
*   Detailfull parts , representing the seams on the fabric, small counterweight and support points .
*  Right shape than kit parts (slightly more straight to the wing tip) .
*  Low cost (money worth) .

One point about this set : it is supposed that comes for the Hasegawa kit, but  this model kit have been reissued many times -mine is a 1978-80 issue ! 
I suppose that if it suits in my, it will fit into the most modern issues , just beware what you have in your stack or what you are buying when you are going to build a Zero fighter .
Highly recommented !
