This is a 1/72 WWII Aichi M6A1 Seiran Airplane Kit from Tamiya.
The Aichi M6A1 Seiran was a unique airplane in WWII in that it was developed by the Japanese Navy to fly off specially designed submarines. The aircraft had floats to enable it to land near the sub for recovery at the end of each mission and the wings folded to allow for storage in a watertight hanger on the sub's deck. Several Seirans were completed by the end of the war, but their first operational mission was ended by the Japanese surrender. This kit is the first ever 1/72nd scale model to be developed by Tamiya.
