ZERO - Acrylic Desk Block

Mitsubishi A6M Zero 'X-133'

This restored example of a World War Two Japanese Zero fighter aircraft is one of the few remaining Zero's. After the conclusion of the Pacific Theatre of World War Two,  most surviving Japanese aircraft were destroyed where they lay, usually by burning. Those aircraft in more isolated areas were simply left to rust, often to be stripped for useful components by local indigenous populations. Some examples were shipped to Allied homelands (principally America and Australia) for technical study, but by the 1950s most of these had been sold for scrap. 

During the 1970s, surviving examples of Japanese aircraft were often repaired, restored, and placed on public display. Some further examples were recovered from battle zones and, in a few cases, renovated to high standards. There are doubtless many more still corroding in jungle areas or under the sea.

Acrylic desk block size: 18cm x 14.4cm (3cm deep)


Our acrylic desk blocks give the photo a three dimensional look. They are perfect for desks, bookshelves, mantlepieces, bed side tables - any horizontal surface.

The photo is printed on professional grade metallic photographic paper, using archival inks. It is then mounted on the back of an acrylic (plexiglass) block. It is finished with diamond polishing, buffing and final hand polish.

They are free standing, so no hanging system is required. These are a very popular option for gifts, farewell presents or if you need a small lightweight option to travel with. Acrylic desk blocks come in a box ready to gift.
