Full Description

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 Laser Cut & Additional Wood Packs. The model is covered in sheet balsa. The model is designed to be powered by two-stroke (.60 cu.) or four-stroke (80 – 90) 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!) It is not suitable for beginners, either to plan building or model flying.The Full Size: 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.

What’s in an Additional Wood Pack?

Our Additional Wood Packs contain MOST of the necessary sheet and strip wood needed to complete a model being built from a Sarik Hobbies plan and using the associated Laser Cut Wood Pack, if available. We stock a wide range of balsa, ply and spruce in popular sheet and strip sizes but even so we cannot guarantee to be able to supply all the wood necessary to complete each model. So some additional purchases may be required from other modeling wood stockists if not available from Sarik Hobbies. Our Additional Wood Packs only contain balsa, ply and spruce wood in the stock sizes as used by our suppliers and do not include other materials that may be required to complete the model such as hardwoods, metals & GRP sheets.
