Full Description

The Kawanishi N1K Kyōfū (‘strong wind’) was an Imperial Japanese Navy floatplane fighter. The Kawanishi N1K-J Shiden (‘Violet Lightning’) was an Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service land-based version of the N1K. Assigned the Allied codename ‘George’, it was considered to be one of the finest land based fighters during WWII. Only four days after the Shiden’s first test flight a complete redesign was begun, the N1K2-J; this new design addressed the N1K1-J’s major defects. Unlike the A6M Zero, the Shiden Kai could compete against the best late-war fighters, such as the F6F Hellcat, the F4U Corsair and P-51 Mustang. Despite such capability it suffered from unreliable engines and was produced too late and in insufficient numbers to affect the outcome of the war.

One of Brian Taylor’s earlier designs, this iconic Japanese WWII fighter is available on two well detailed sheets and builds into a 62” 1:7.4 scale replica. Although showing a fixed undercarriage, this model is suitable for retractable gear, with no awkward angles involved. The model is of conventional all-wood construction, and moulded accessories are available, along with a laser cut wood pack. The model is designed to be powered by two-stroke or four-stroke engines, but experienced modellers should be able to convert it to electric power (details not supplied, so please send us information if you make a successful EP version!)
