More info

The Kawanishi H8K (Nishiki Hikōtei, Type 2 Flying Boat. Commonly called as Nishiki Ōgata Hikōtei, Nishiki Daitei or Nishiki Taitei, Type 2 Large-sized Flying Boat) was an Imperial Japanese Navy flying boat used by the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service during World War II for maritime patrol duties. The Allied reporting name for the type was "Emily".

With four engines, a gigantic wingspan, and bristling weapons stations, the H8K1 was an exceptional aircraft indeed. It could fly thousands of miles, land on water near small islands, refuel, and fly thousands of miles again. It could carry thousands of pounds of bombs. On its most daring raid, however, the H8K1 flew thousands of miles across the Pacific, refueled at French Frigate Shoals, and then struck a second blow against Hawaii just months after Pearl Harbor.

This kit features new gun parts and decals for two versions as also 11 figures of pilots and flying crew.

Decal Options:

  • IJN 802nd Naval Flying Group Code: N1-13
  • IJN 14th Naval Flying Group Code: W-47 Rabaul
