Description

This is an injection-plastic aircraft model kit.

Adapted from the Hasegawa website:

Tetsuz? Iwamoto was a great and tragic figure of Japanese history. He was a fighter ace, frequently credited with 80+ victories in WWII plus more against China. This made him one of if not the highest-ranked Japanese pilots in terms of air kills. His skill with and mastery of the vaunted Zero was recognized from his very first mission and he fought in numerous major battles. Incredibly, he survived the war. Unfortunately, peace is sometimes more brutal than war. Iwamoto died at 38 from septicemia after surgeons removed four of his ribs without anesthetic. His last words were "I want to fly again". 

When completed, this model kit measures about 285mm long and has a wing span of about 344mm. Aircraft parts come molded in gray and figure parts come molded in light brown. Includes clear parts and decals.
