Built by Mitsubishi or Nakajima.
Abandoned in the Rabaul area.
Displayed at the Kokopo
War Museum outdoors. The front half and wings are from a A6M2 Model 21 Zero. The fuselage and tail section are from A6M3 Zero 3390.
Justin Taylan adds:
"Although the aircraft looks
gutted, it is
condition. All the fittings and framework are present, even
the wing 20mm cannons."
