So, obviously at 300 Yen these are not going to be the best examples of these aircraft ever. However, if you compare the quality of these aircraft to the early Yujin or Furuta Gacha aircraft - you can see how much the manufacturing process has improved in the last 10 years to be able to issue these at a higher level of quality for the same price!

Also, though not at the level or quality of  Takara "Wings of the Luftwaffe" or Tomytech "GiMix" series, its nice to see them showing 1/144 aircraft some interest...

 Nakajima Ki-84 Hayate (キ84 疾風 Gale) The Allied reporting name was "Frank"; the Japanese Army designation was Army Type 4 Fighter (四式戦闘機, yon-shiki-sentō-ki). The Ki-84 is generally considered the best Japanese fighter to operate in large numbers during the conflict.

The Mitsubishi A6M "Zero" is a long-range fighter aircraft; The A6M was designated as the Mitsubishi Navy Type 0 carrier fighter (零式艦上戦闘機, rei-shiki-kanjō-sentōki), or the Mitsubishi A6M Rei-sen.

The A6M was usually referred to by its pilots as the Reisen (零戦, zero fighter), "0" being the last digit of the imperial year 2600 (1940) when it entered service with the Imperial Navy.
The official Allied reporting name was "Zeke", although the use of the name "Zero" (from Type 0) was used colloquially by the Allies as well.
