1946, Guadalcanal. With the success of the J7W Shinden prototype for the Japanese Army Air Corps, the Imperial Japanese Navy also embarks on an advanced aircraft of their own. Paralleling the development of the Shinden, the Navy receives possible designs from numerous manufacturers, and finally settles on a design from Mitsubishi as its newest aircraft.
Debuting in combat over the islands of the South-Pacific in October 1946, the IJN's Mitsubishi A62M Seishin-Kaze ("Spirit Wind", shorted from Seishin no Kaze or "Spirit of the Wind") takes Allied planners by surprise. Much like the earlier A6M Zero, the A62M is a fast and very agile fighter, and a serious threat against its contemporaries in other forces!
Numerous conforming extras and over 50 ERC controls for the various parts of the aircraft to allow for maximum usability. Controls include some standard combat maneuvers as well as individual controls for the various moving parts on the aircraft. The model also features a fully detailed interior with working flight controls that are tied by ERC to the flight surfaces and moving parts of the aircraft.
Also included are Optional Weapons Sets, a Dummy Pilot, Crew Boarding Ladder, and conforming Prop-Blur effect figures.
Included conforming figure add-ons:
* 1 set of conforming external "drop-tank" fuel tanks is included. These "drop-tanks" conforms to the Seishin-Kaze and are individually pose able so that the user can make them fall away and tumble as they drop, with ERC dials for ease of use.
* 1 set of 2 conforming 572lb bombs, with ERC dials for ease of use.
* 1 set of conforming Seaplane Floats.
* 1 set of conforming "prop-blur" effects props for the propellers of the aircraft to give a sense of motion in flight.
* 1 conforming "dummy" pilot figure (this figure is non-pose-able and doesn't not contain any joints or bones. This figure is low poly but is provided so that you can have a crew in the aircraft for your renders without needing to use the fully rigged figures).
* 1 pose-able Crew Boarding Ladder for use in ground scenes.
