The Nakajima Ki-115 Tsurugi was a one-man kamikaze aircraft developed by the Imperial Japanese Army Air Force in the closing stages of World War II in 1945. It's intended purpose was to be used in kamikaze attacks on Allied shipping and the invasion fleet expected to be involved in the invasion of Japan, Operation Downfall. Because the Japanese High Command thought that Japan did not have enough obsolete aircraft to use for kamikaze attacks, it was decided that huge numbers of cheap, simple suicide planes should be constructed quickly in anticipation of the invasion of Japan. Kit has engraved panel lines, detailed (cockpit, resin engine, 2-piece cowling and undercarriage), single piece propeller with separate spinner, optional canopy, centerline drop tank (resin), photoetch (seatbelts, instrument panel and other interior and exterior accents). Decals and color painting reference for (3) aircraft: Tokyo, Spring 1946; ATAIU-Sea, Singapore, April 1946 and Okinawa, January 1946.
