1:72 Scale Diecast Metal - Aichi - Yokosuka D4Y Suisei - Judy Imperial Japanese Navy Dive bomber – Length: 5.25" Wingspan: 6.25”
This model is a twin seat airplane. The cockpit is glue shut. It has no pilot figure included. The landing gear is optional and can be attached or omitted to display the model in in-flight configuration. A display stand is included.
This is really a "no-play" model or a "display-only" model. It is mostly metal and very heavy. It also has a number of antennas which look great but are very fragile. If you have small kids that like to play with your models, save yourself some frustration (and money) and wait till later to get a model like this one. The box is labeled as not suitable for children under 14.
