You got me puzzled now. Are you saying there's a 1/48 Raiden in an Esci
box? I'm no 1/48th expert but I don't recall Esci doing much with
I do recall the 1/32 Revell Raiden but I haven't seen one since the
Bill Banaszak, MFE Sr.
I wouldn't mind having a 1/32 scale Kyushu J7W1 Shinden canard
A 1/32 scale Aichi D3A "Val" would also make a nice model.
Dare we ask for a 1/32 scale injection molded Ohka?
It's too bad that Revell's Japanese series of fighters in 1/32 scale
didn't go further than it did in the 1960's-70's.
A 1/32 scale "Tojo" would have been fun, and "Rex" seaplane fighter
would have been a real eye-catcher.
...and given its small size and fairly simple design, pretty easy to
make a affordable model of also.
A visible version with half the fuselage transparent would be fascinating.
As the world's only operational suicide aircraft that was designed
specifically to fulfill that role, it's very interesting from a
historical point of view also.
If it weren't for the embarrassment over its mission. I'd bet the
Japanese model industry would have had a model of it out in large scale
Wouldn't mind seeing it released as a dual kit with a cutaway Kaiten
suicide torpedo in 1/32 scale one iota.
