WOW205 Kyushu Shinden
Out of Stock
WOW205: The Kyushu Shinden (Incredible Lightning) was a late war experimanetal ‘Heavy Fighter’ procured by the Japanese Navy in an attempt to rid the skies of American B-29 Superfortresses. The design was radical in that the engine was a pusher type fitted to the rear with a canard fitted to the front for increased stability. Armament was to be 4 x cannons fitted into the nose, it was envisaged that a jet engine would replace the conventional turbo prop design once these became available. Two prototypes were built and flown before the end of the war, both were captured intact by the Americans and shipped to the USA for evaluation. We have 1 Shinden available which comes with a free mat as per the attached photos. The figures shown are for scale illustration purposes only. The price shown includes $100 shipping charge as there is no free shipping on warbirds due to their large size.
