.:Hasegawa:. Nakajima A6M2-N Seaplane (Rufe) "802nd Flying Group"

Hunting PT boats

With its large floats, the "Rufe" seaplane was able to operate from limited forward bases for the Japanese during WWII. These same floats, however, degraded the flight performance of the base aircraft (the vaunted Mitsubishi Zero). This resulted in a very deadly situation. If the A6M2-N found the PT boats, it could be quite bad for them. However, if escort fighters found the "Rufe" the seaplanes didn't stand a chance. This limited edition kit combo features two aircraft with three sets of decals.
