Description

This is an injection-plastic aircraft model kit.

The Mitsubishi Ki-51, Army designation "Type 99 Assault Plane". Allied nickname "Sonia" was a light bomber/dive bomber in service with the Imperial Japanese Army during World War II. It first flew in mid-1939. Initially deployed against Chinese forces, it proved to be too slow to hold up against the fighter aircraft of the other Allied powers. However, it performed a useful ground-attack role in the China-Burma-India theater, notably from airfields too rough for many other aircraft. As the war drew to a close, the Japanese began using them in kamikaze attacks. Total production was around 2,385 units.

This plastic kit features a high detailed cockpit.
