Kyushu Experimental Area Defense Fighter Shinden (J7W1).  The Shinden is the 1/72 kit from Hasegawa. This model is easy to build, except the canopy, which is a little narrower
than the fuselage. I decided to build the prototype in the early condition, i.e. without the small tyres at the stabiliser. By Urs Bopp of Switzerland. (14 Feb 01)
