WWII's ultimate Japanese fighter plane.
Following its 1943 introduction, the Kawanishi N1K quickly earned a reputation for being incredibly resilient and highly maneuverable. In combat, the N1K could easily go toe-to-toe against the F6F Hellcat, as well as the P-51 Mustang, and the F4U Corsair. The N1K1-Jb version featured four 20 mm cannons mounted in the wings and could carry two 250kg bombs, but itlacked the frontal 7.7 mm guns of earlier variants. This limited edition kit features markings for aircraft fresh from the Himeji factory.
