    It does contain some inaccuracies, but these can be sorted out (and improved upon) during the build process.

    I glazed the screen, added some rigging, and made the undercarriage more realistic.

    The aircraft was built in 1945, prototype numbers only. Its 'boxy' appearance is down to the simple plywood and fabric materials. The fuel tank was mounted externally, in front of the screen, the engine being gravity-fed. The undercarriage was a simple fixed wooden design.

    Very cheap to build, it was to be flown by a Kamikaze pilot. Japan ceased hostilities before the aircraft could be used.
