1/72 72118 MPM Mitsubishi A7M2 Reppu 'Sam'
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Sealed Exc++
Still factory sealed. Designed as a replacement for the A6M Reisen, the first A7M1 was completed in 1944. The fighter was well armed and had self sealing tank, hydraulically folding wings and a bullet proof windshield. The Navy, however, did not use the recommended engine, so the aircraft was under powered. The revised version with the MK9A was a complete success, but earthquakes, bombing raids and a prototype crash delayed the project till the end of the war. With many brass photoetched details.
