FineMolds' 1/48 Sanka Mk. B ~ In-box preview
No far behind Bandai's release of their 1/72 Sky Crawler kits, comes FineMolds with their 1/48 version of the Sanka Mk. B.
Sky Crawlers is a 2008 Japanese anime film adapted from the novel series by Hiroshi Mori, which follows the journeys and tribulations of a group of young fighter pilots involved in dogfight warfare, and is set during an alternate historical period.
The Sanka Mk. B was designed to represent the ultimate in propeller aircraft development, evolutionary rather than revolutionary. The strong resemblance of this aircraft to the Kyushu J7W Shinden is anything but coincidental.
This kit features a high level of interior detail, clear canopy parts, landing gear than can be built extended or retracted, and geared counter-rotating propellers. No base is included with the kit, so you'll have to come up with your own.
