Hasegawa 1/72 Kyushu J7W1 18-Shi Shinden 00450 Plastic Model Kit
Hasegawa - 1/72 Kyushu J7W1 18-Shi Shinden
Shinden made its first flight at the end of World War II, the end of the Pacific War, August 3, 1945, at the Kubota Airfield in Kyushu. This is a very unusually shaped aircraft with the wings in the back and a small wing, usually called the horizontal tail, in front of it. The engine is at the rear of the fuselage and the propeller is mounted backwards. This method, called Ente wings, can increase the hit rate by equipping the machine gun at the center of the fuselage because there is no propeller at the nose. In addition, the line of the aircraft becomes smooth and you can get high speed. Shinden was made to fight against long distance bombers such as B-29, but the war on August 15 was over and there was no activity at all.
