Jack & George

No - it's not an episode of The Sweeney  (for those unfamiliar with this televisual gem see http://www.thesweeney.info/), but another pair of Japanese Navy fighters.  These are both F-Toys kits which I completed over the Christmas holiday.
Firstly we have 'George' - more properly known as the Kawanishi N1K-J Shiden.
And then 'Jack' - the Mitsubishi J2M Raiden.
Both of these fighters lack (to my eye at least) the elegance of earlier aircraft like Zero, Tojo etc and look very brutally powerful in a manner reminiscent of the P-47.

Thanks, but no paint required! All I did was a bit of assembly. Another good result for little effort!

My knowledge of Japanese fighters formerly stood at just the zero!

Your blog is a good educational read :)
