Minicraft Model Aircraft 1/144 B7A Ryusie Grace IJA Torpedo Bomber Kit
The B7A Ryusei was designed as a torpedo bomber for the Imperial Japanese Navy. Code named “Grace” by US and allied aircraft spotters, this large Japanese torpedo bomber was produced late in the war and was expected to be used on the largest of the new Japanese aircraft carriers, Taiho and Shinano. After these ships were sunk in 1944 the Ryusei torpedo bombers were limited to operating from land bases until the end of the war. Minicraft’s kit is offered for the first time in over 10 years and features new decals and markings for 2 different aircraft.
