1/72 Shinmeiwa US-1 Rescue Ivory Limited Edition

1/72 Shinmeiwa US-1 Rescue Ivory Limited Edition

All set for amphibious rescues

Like the earlier PS-1, the US-1 and US-1A are STOL (Short Takeoff and Landing) aircraft. However, while the PS-1 featured on-board beaching gear for anti-submarine warfare, the US-1 and US-1A are amphibious search-and-rescue aircraft. From 1976-1999, the US-1A saved 550 lives in 500+ rescue missions. Shin Meiwa only built six US-1s and fourteen US-1As for the JMSDF in all, but they're still being flown today! This limited edition kit features resin parts.

Decal Options:

  1. US-1A : JMSDF 71st SQ Code: 9090
  2. US-1 : JMSDF Code: 9071
