MPM TWO Kawanishi N1K1 Shinden George, 1/72, 72123

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc


includes TWO models. Each features fine, all recessed panel line detail, many photoetched parts and decals for four aircraft. Never started. Both have been inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. During construction of the NiK1 Kyofu (Strong Wind) float plane, the design team at Kawanishi did a study of converting that aircraft to a land-based fighter. The design seemed very promising, but the Japanese Navy rejected it. Kawanishi decided to privately fund the building of prototypes regardless. The aircraft flew and flew well, but the navy was unimpressed as they ordered the J2M Raiden into production. Kawanishi, undaunted, built four additional prototypes. The IJN was finally won over, and funds were released to produce the fighter. Production problems were solved in time for the Shiden (Violet Lightning) to see action before the end of the war, but not in significant numbers to change the tide. The Shiden was an excellent aircraft, but a modified version, NiK2-J may have been the finest Japanese Naval fighters of the war.

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+


Very rare limited production model of this IJN Auxiliary. Very well detailed resin waterline model that includes full illustrated instructions and even a painting guide. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags. The Katsuriki had a very interesting and long career. She was originally completed in 1917 as minelayer, and the first ocean going ship of this type in the Japanese Navy. In WWI she served around the Japanese home islands. In the 1920s she was guardship off many of the the South Pacific Mandate Islands and began doing survey work of these new Japanese territories. With expansionist policies already in place, the need for a specialized survey ship was obvious and in 1935 she was converted to that role. The minelaying equipment was removed and surveying devices from the retired survey ship Manshu were installed. She took part in much intelligence gathering off the coast of China, then examined future targets for the Imperial Navy before WWII. Some areas she visited included the Spratly Islands, Kwajalein in the Marshall Islands, and surveyed and Tarawa in the Gilbert Islands. When World War II started, Katsuriki was re-designated a 'secret military vessel' on 20 July 1942, although her mission was still maritime surveying. She mapped the coasts of the Strait of Malacca, Burma, Singapore, the Dutch East Indies and north coast of New Guinea in support of Japanese troop landings and combat operations. On 21 September 1944 Katsukiki was torpedoed by USS Haddo southwest of Manila and sank. The Haddo spotted about 40 survivors and attempted to rescue, but the Japanese chose to drown themselves.
