Description

 

The T-1B was the first post-war Japanese designed and built military training aircraft.

It was initially powered by a jet engine made in Britain, and was also the first jet plane made in Japan by the old "NAKAJIMA HIKOUK SEISAKUSHOI" company.

 

 

Red and white suited this streamlined airframe, and the painting of the airplane very much suited the "HINOMARU" markings.

Though now retired service though, the T-1 served for about 50 years, and brought up several generations of  JASD pilot.

 

 

Hasegawa's 1/72 scale T-1B captures the feature of this airframe well, and is a good kit.
