Sorry, this item is out of stock


The Kawanishi N1K2-J Shiden - Kai was developed from the 'Kyofu' floatplane fighter. In modifying the floatplane to a land fighter, the Japanese first developed an aircraft with long landing gear to accommodate its original mid-wing design. Later, to the relief of Japanese pilots, the design was again modified to a low-wing configuration; shortening the length of the landing gear struts, which were originally so long as to be structurally weak.
