The Mitsubishi Zero web video

The Mitsubishi A6M Zero was a long-range carrier-based fighter aircraft operated by the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service (IJNAS) from 1940-45. It was designated as the Navy Type 0 Carrier Fighter, which led to its popular name 'Zero' among both the Allies and the Japanese, who called it Rei-sen ('Zero'-sen). The official Allied reporting name was 'Zeke'.

With only modest power but a very light, strong alloy airframe and fittings, the Zero had an excellent combination of speed and manoeuvrability, plus a very long range. When it was introduced, the Zero was considered the most capable carrier-based fighter in the world, and by the time Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor brought it into World War II, it was the primary Japanese naval fighter in the Pacific arena. It was also deployed from land bases. This beautiful model was made and produced in Japan.
