This new kit also turned up on my local hobby shop's shelves yesterday.
It is the basic 1/48 scale kit with a twin 20mm "Schrage Music"
installation behind the pilot. Kit parts include a new main clear canopy
and a nice set of cast metal 20mm cannon and mountings. Decals cover a
302nd Naval Air Group bird and one from the Yokosuka naval Air Arsenal.
I believe I remember a Myrrh with a single 30 mm cannon installation so
we will probably get still another iteration of the Myrt night fighter
in the future.
I am really fascinated by how thin and clear hasegawa is getting their
clear canopy parts. There won't be much need for vac-u-form canopies if
this keeps up.
