Hasegawa 1/48 Attack Bomber Tenzen (Jill) Type 12 09061 Plastic Model Kit
Hasegawa - 1/48 Attack Bomber Tenzen (Jill) Type 12
In December 1939, the Imperial Japanese Navy issued a specification for a new torpedo bomber that would be the successor of the B5N “Kate”. The new aircraft, built by Nakajima, should have a crew of three, a top speed of 290mph (460 kmh) and carry the same payload as the B5N. The prototype’s first flight was made on March 14, 1941 and several problems soon became evident. A re-design of the tail fin solved the stability issues, but the plane’s main weakness was its chosen power plant, the Mamoru 11 14-cylinder radial, which was prone to vibrations, over-heating and never achieved its expected power rating.
After many improvement attempts, carrier acceptance trials were started at the end of 1942, mass-production being launched in early 1943. However, the mechanical problems remained so severe that the Navy ordered the engine to be replaced with the Kasei 25 radial after only 133 produced airframes – a relatively simple change that didn’t require too many modifications, and gave birth to the B6N2 Tenzan model 12, this review’s subject.
