Hasegawa - 1/48 Aichi B7A2 Attack Bomber Ryusei Kai

One of the greatest common threads between the axis powers of Japan and Germany during the Second World War was the concept of too little too late in terms of aircraft development. Aichi’s B7A2 Ryusei Kai (Grace) was indeed no exception to this rule. Developed with the lofty expectations of having to replace both the Nakajima B6N Tenzan (Jill) and the Yokosuka D4Y (Judy), the Grace was also hampered by engine problems and a major earthquake at the main production plant. Add to this the fact that by the time the aircraft saw actual service the Imperial Japanese Navy had no carriers left for it to operate from! Although only 111 examples of the aircraft were built and most of those were lost on the ground or in fruitless Kamikaze attacks, the Grace was an excellent naval attack bomber surpassing most all pre-production requirements.
