Take to the skies with the Airfix Nakajima B5N1 "Kate" Model Kit.

When the Nakajima B5N1 torpedo bomber entered service in 1937, it was the most advanced aircraft of its type in the world. Known by its Allied reporting name of 'Kate', the B5N1 proved devastatingly effective in the early Pacific engagements of WWII.

Known as the Type 97 Carrier Attack Bomber, the B5N1 'Kate' was the main Japanese naval attack aircraft of the war and was to take a heavy toll of Allied shipping. Even though it served throughout WWII, the 'Kate' was obsolete by the time newer American fighters entered the Pacific War but it was forced to continue fighting, as an effective replacement aircraft was not available to the Japanese Navy.

This kit will be the perfect addition to any model-maker's collection.

Airfix Nakajima B5N1 Kate Model Kit 1:72 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely kit Large for the scale, good decals and glassware landing gear intricate but realistic

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Kit A really brilliant kit from Airfix. Went together with no issues at all and with very little filler needed. Loads of detail in the cockpit area and come with the option of deployed flaps (separate flaps provided in the neutral or deployed position) and optional folded wings (the wings will have to be cut off to utilise this option, so a razor saw and a lot of patience will be required!!). All in all, an excellent kit and looks fantastic when complete.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Display Piece. And Really Great Value for money. A good Historical Showpiece, visually striking - The model is quite large in size.and the red colour markings are just like on the box art.-The red is from the paste-on decals - So no need for red paint - But you must do the silver and black, Silver can be difficult to paint - but a small amount went on smoothly, no blemishes, puddling or pooling - the plastic works really well with the paint.Maybe I'll make a base of ship-decking to display it on. Really Great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great kit and very affordable Been doing tabletop wargaming for a number of years now and recently moved into the WW2 genre with a Japanese army. I already had a 1/72 scale fighter and found this fighter/bomber in Hobbycraft for a reasonable price. The kit itself is great, no warping and good detailing. Just a shame that Hobby craft only do 1 other Japanese plane and only in 1/72 scale considering they have a range of British, German and USA in both 1/72 and 1/48 scales, especially when there is no shortage of Japanese aircraft model kits. Same can also be said about the Soviet/Russian WW2 planes too. Overall, great product.
