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.
