Plastic kit to assemble a Kawanishi N1K1-Jb Shiden Otsu Type 11 (version 2) model.
It is a very detailed model. It includes the most part of the parts in injected grey pastic, with transparent plastic glasses. It contains decals.
The Shiden 11B "Otsu" was different from 11A "Kou" with its revised wing weapons. The 20 mm cannons where changed to the belt-fed mark 4, with all four cannons contained in its main wing. As a result, the cannon pods under the main wings were removed, giving Shiden a sleek silhouette. Also, the belt-fed mechanism allowed to hold more rounds which increased from 400 to 600-800. The Genzan Air Group unit is best known fot the operation of Shiden "Otsu", which operated in combat missions and escort/support for Kamikaze suicide attack planes.
