1:250 Scale – Kawasaki P-2J (P2V-Kai) Maritime Patrol - Japan JMSDF - Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force – Length: 4.5" Wingspan: 4.75”
This P-2 is made of a combination of metal and plastic parts. The landing gear is fixed in the extended position. There is a small transparent plastic plate that displays the model's type, however this is all in Japanese.
This is a Japanese import so all the labeling and branding are in Japanese.
The maker of the model, DeAgostini, really did a good job with the model, the panel lines and details are very crisp and one can see the little dots that represent the rivets holding down the panels.
The model comes encased in plastic shells.
This is really a "no-play" model or a "display-only" model.
The package measures 6.5" x 7" x 2"
The Kawasaki P-2J (originally P2V-Kai) was a Maritime patrol and ASW aircraft developed for the Japan Maritime Self Defense Force. A turboprop-powered version of the radial-engined P-2 Neptune, the P-2J was developed as an alternative to buying the larger and more expensive P-3 Orion, which would eventually replace the P-2J in the 1980s.
