| Description

The Nakajima B5N2 'Kate' was the most numerous Japanese torpedo bomber of the Second World War and while primarily operated as a torpedo bomber from carriers, it also saw service as a land based bomber. A single engine monoplane, it was defended by just one rearward firing machine gun, operated by the radio operator, and its relatively low speed left it vulnerable to enemy fighters, perfoming well at Pearl Harbour and going on to have success at the Battle of the Coral Sea and Midway.

Nakajima B5N2 Kate

Building this superb kit at the moment as part of my Pearl Harbor collection.Top marks Airfix for the choices in this kit, meaning i will be building four.Not only 3 options of canopy in closed,open in three parts and just open at the rear gunners position,but the ordanance in the kit means you can build any Kanko from December 7th. A torpedo,800kg Armour piercing bomb,800kg Normal Land Bomb,and for the Shokaku plane on the box lid a mix of 250kg and 60kg bombs. Cockpit detail is superb too. Hoping for a new release for an Akagi/Kaga and Hiryu based plane for the torpedo. I know Airfix dont usually do this [release same kit with different decals] but there are parts in this kit not used making me wonder [ The torpedo PLUS wooden fins only used at Pearl Harbor] I love this kit. Just need a new tool Aichi Val now in 72nd Airfix !... Read more

Well detailed, lots of options

I didn't know much about this plane before making it. I'm very pleased with how it turned out - very detailed cockpit, lots of options (especially the multiple positions for the canopy). I made it with the wings folded - it looks great and saves space for display as this is quite large for a single engined aircraft. Highly recommended

Nakajima Kate B5N2

Absolute brilliant kit to go with the rest of new tooled Airfix Kits the only error and it was mine not the kits was finding a Tamiya Acrylic to match the Humbrol Hemp - I can see a second one appearing on my bench, detail, wing options, weapons load option, canopy options all brilliantly well don.
