YOKOSUKA MXY-7 OKHA "BAKA" (1945)
About the Design
Nicknamed the "Cherry Blossom," this one-manned rocket-powered suicide bomb was one of the many "kamikaze" aircraft developed by a desperate Japan during the final months of WWII. Dropped by a larger aircraft, the Baka, loaded with high-explosives, would approach its target -- usually an American warship -- in a steep high-speed dive, making the aircraft nearly impossible to intercept.
About the Kit
This tiny kit was packaged in a twin set with an unmanned V-1 "Buzz Bomb" under the name "2 Terror Attackers." (The V-1 has since been lost.)
This kit was built from an original issue.
