Hasegawa - 1:48 Scale Mitsubishi J2M3 Raiden Type 21 "Tatsumaki Unit" Limited Edition #07428
The heavily armed, high-powered J2M3 Raiden was meant for short-range defense of high-value targets against B-29 Superfortresses. Without a turbocharger it couldn't operate at the level of the B-29 superfortress for long, but thanks to its four-20mm cannon armament, it didn't have to. Despite its fine qualities, the Raiden was not produced in enough numbers to make a significant impact on the war effort, especially after the US switched to night-bombing in the Pacific. Kit features three sets of IJN decals.
