AZ Yokosuka K5Y2 Akatombo 赤とんぼ (Red Dragonfly) “Willow” in 1/72 Scale

This is the “new” AZ Model Yokosuka K5Y2 Akatombo kit first issued in 2013.  This is a nice kit, but like the earlier LS issue does not come with a beaching cart.  The rudder is molded a bit too short and has to built up on the lower edge.  The kit’s seats are ridiculously small and should be replaced, I went ahead and detailed out the cockpit while I was at it.  The markings are from the kit and represent an aircraft of the Kishima Kokutai in 1944.
