JN042 The Aichi D3A1 “VAL”
Following on from the success of the Pearl Harbor Mitsubishi A6M “Zeroes” we decided to add on another great Japanese warplane that played a major role in the events of December 7, 1941.
The AICHI D3A1 “Val” was Japan’s principal dive bomber of WW2. Used exclusively by the Imperial Japanese Navy it took part in virtually every major IJN operation during WW2 including, of course, the attack on Pearl Harbor.
This model is in the markings of a “Val” that flew off the aircraft carrier “AKAGI” on the morning of the Pearl Harbor attack.
Note: Just 250 of this aircraft are being released
