At first glance, "extras" 2 and 3 look like a Mitsubishi J4M1 Senden and a Kyushu J7W2 Shinden-Kai. I can't seen a prop on no. "3", so it's not a Shinden (which would be an odd choice anyway given that it's been done several times in 1/144). Not sure of no. "1". Any ideas?

There's a possibility that it could be a Ki-98 instead of a J4M1, they look pretty similar. Also that could be a Mizuno Shinryu, not a J7W1/2. The first could be a Baika.

You're right lakepseed. That's not a J7W2, but it's a Shinryu! The Shinden-Kai has 2 tail fins, which I don't see in the picture here. I'm always impressed by Anignrand putting out kits that no one else has released yet, so this is excellent.

And you're also right about the Senden. The wings on the Senden don't look like this picture, so it's probably a Ki-98.

This kit is worth buying now, since all 4 planes are new releases. Very cool.

sory guys, i dont have much of clue when i comes to Japanese aircraft.

I quite liked the "Late Planning Series" by Canvas, but ant realy offer any insight!

I've been waiting for a J7W1/2 kit from A&V Models forever and I missed out on the Dynavector ones. So I wouldn't mind one here but a Ki-98 works too!

I've already got thte Luke kit from Landmark so I'm good there.

As fanatical of a collector in 1/144 as I am I just can't do the pre-built F-Toys etc. stuff. To me it feels like cheating! *LOL*

i have been waiting for the A+V kits for ages, there are a nmber of German and Japanese late planning aircraft on the A+V schedule, but hich have been listed as "soon" for ages!

as for the dynevector, no idea what happened there! if i hadnt seen photos from a reliable source i would have disblieved its exiistance!

and the official dynavector contact of english, never returned the emails! and none of the stockists dynvector kits had much luck either!?

does landmark kits have a website?

doh!

do you mean these guys!?

Yup, that would be them. I'm not sure if they ship out of Japan but I contacted a guy over there that helped me get these kits and some of the Tokiwa Aircraft Create kits as well.

I'd be happy to pass the info on if you are interested. They are pretty nice. The kits I do have built I build wheels up and props spinning on homemade stands so they are good for me.

I saw the Dynavector J7W1 on e-Bay, 2 kits in one package. Needless to say it went for a lot more than I could justify spending.

And I agree with you on the A+V stuff, I'd like their Me-109Z as well.
