1/72 Kawanishi H8K2 Flying Boat Limited Edition

1/72 Kawanishi H8K2 Flying Boat Limited Edition

The I.J.N.'s exceptional "Emily"

Nicknamed "Emily" by the Allies, the Kawanishi H8K2 was first developed in June of 1943. The H8K2 boasted many advantages over the H8K1, most notably Mitsubishi® MK4Q engines and an upgraded tail gun turret. Later versions lacked side gun blisters; these featured Air-to-Surface-Vessel search radar. These improvements helped make the H8K2 a favorite with pilots in the I.J.N.'s 851st Flying Group.

Decal Option:

  1. I.J.N. 851st Naval Flying Group, Code: 51-049, early 1944, plus extra decals featuring alternate registration numbers: 51-086 and 801-77
