Hasegawa 1/48 Kyushu J7W2 Shindenkai 'Jet Version

The Kyushu J7W1 Shinden (Magnificent Lightning) was Japan's WWII canard fighter. Several large scale research gliders proved that the canard concept was feasible, so production was ordered on the J7W1. Two prototype aircraft were built before the end of the war, but only one was flown for two short flights. During these flights, there was a strong torque and vibration which was in need of correction before full production could take place. Designs were in place to have the rear mounted radial engine replaced with a turbojet engine (J7W2 Shinden Kai) but World War II ended before such a configuration could take place.
