Hasegawa - 1:48 Scale Nakajima C6N1 Carrier Recon. Plane Saiun (Myrt) 'Higashi-Karorin Flying Group' #07402
The IJN's "iridescent cloud"
When it came to speed and recon, only the F6F-5 Hellcat could match the Nakajima C6N1. This three-seat aircraft was nicknamed the Saiun or "Iridescent Cloud" by Japan, while the Allies referred to it as "Myrt." The C6N1 was a carrier-based aircraft, but since many carriers were destroyed by 1945, the IJN deployed them from land bases like Truk Island and Ominato. This limited edition kit features two marking options.
