1/72 CZ003 MPM Aichi M6A1 Seiran
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc
Limited issue injection molded kit with fine recessed panel detail. Never started. The parts are either still in the factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The M6A1 Seiran was a late war submarine based float plane. The new I-400 class contained a large, water tight hanger and this aircraft was designed specifically for that space. The wings and tail folded to fit but the aircraft could be assembled in 7 minutes by a trained crew. To aid in night assembly, the critical parts were painted with florescent paint. The first planned attack was the Panama Canal, but this was cancelled in favor of Ulithi Atoll anchorage. The war ended before the attack could take place.
