The first 1/32 J2M3 kit since the 1960s!
Designed by Jiro Horikoshi, the Mitsubishi J2M could fly faster - and climb even higher - than the celebrated A6M Zero. The J2M3 Type 21 was distinguished by a powerful MK4R-A Kasei 23a engine, two wing-mounted 20 mm Type 99 Model I cannons and two wing-mounted 20 mm Type 99 Model II cannons. While it was no match for the Allies' P-51D Mustang, the J2M3 was rather successful against strategic bombers like the B-29 Superfortress. This exceptional, newly tooled 1/32 scale kit includes all the parts you need to build a realistic, highly detailed pilot figure.

Did you know?
â¢The J2M3 hasn't been produced as a 1/32 scale model since the 1960s, when the moldings were lost in a shipwreck.
â¢The I.J.N. would often outfit J2M3s with two 132-pound (60 kg) bombs or two 53-gallon (200 L) drop tanks.
â¢Visitors to the Planes of Fame Museum in Chino, California can see the J2M in person, along with the world's only flyable A6M Zero.
