The large 1/16 scale showcases the realistic pose and expressive facial features of the figure perfectly. Modelers can choose to assemble the figure with arms folded or in a more heroic stance with a katana in its right hand. Goggle lenses are made from clear parts and rank insignia are recreated with high-quality stickers. A display base is conveniently included as well.
About the Uniform
In the early stages of the war in the Pacific, the Japanese Navy airmens' standard uniform was a flight suit, red leather flight boots and flight cap, and goggles with an anodized aluminum frame. Gloves and a life vest completed the outfit. Official rules did not allow a katana to be brought on board due to the risk of affecting the compass reading, but many photographs show airmen with katana in their aircraft.
