1/48 Kawanishi N1K2-J Shidenkai 343rd Flying Limited Edition

1/48 Kawanishi N1K2-J Shidenkai 343rd Flying Limited Edition

Flying with the rising sun

With the N1K2-J, Kawanishi did the impossible; turning a float plane into a dogfighter that could stand up to the best America had to offer. "George" fighters were quite capable of shooting down Hellcats, Corsairs and, in the hands of expert pilots, even the vaunted B-29 Superfortress. In larger numbers the N1K2-J could have had a massive effect on the war, but only 428 were built. By comparison 12,000 Corsairs, comparable to the N1K2-J, were produced by the U.S. This limited edition kit features decals for two 343rd NFG aircraft.

Decal Options:

  1. I.J.N. 343rd Naval F.G. 701st Fighter SQ. SQ. Leader Lt. Takashi Oshibuchi Code: 343C-45 Matsuyama A.B. March 1945
  2. I.J.N. 343rd Naval F.G. 301st Fighter SQ. Code: 343-A37 Matsuyama A.B. April 1945
