1/32 391-800 Nitto Navy Type 93 Advanced Trainer Willow
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Fair+
Well detailed and molded kit from 1982. The box is complete but rough, but parts and decals are both factory sealed and 'excellent++' as are the instructions. Features rubber tires, metal rigging lines and rigging instructions, excellent engine and cockpit detail, separately molded rudder, four positionable figures (two sitting and two standing) and more. Includes an extensive painting guide and decals for three different aircraft. Molded in orange, dark wood brown, clear and white plastic. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. DD-792 USS Callaghan was sunk July 9, 1945, by a Willow configured for kamikaze attack. It has been reported the light construction of the aircraft prevented the ship's AA ammunition proximity fuses from detonating. The type was also reported to have been used by Indonesian forces against Dutch colonial rule in 1947.
