The first Japanese monoplane fighter with a fully enclosed cockpit and fully retractable landing gear to enter squadron service was the Mitsubishi A6M2, known popularly as the Zero-Sen. The A6M1 prototype was flown first on 1 April 1939, and the '12-Shi fighter project', as it had been known, was adopted officially by the Imperial Japanese Navy on 31 July 1940, under the designation A6M2 Type 0 Carrier Fighter Model 11.

Very quick download time - no problems and it was easy to extract the files. I've just had a quick look at this stage but there seems to be complete documentation. I definately intend to build one so I'll post results of the build as it happens. Worthwhile project by the look of it!
