The Asahi Shimbun newspaper sponsored a high-speed record flight attempt in 1937, on the route from Japan to London (even though that was not an established air route at the time). Dubbed the "Kamikaze," this aircraft left Tachikawa on April 6, 1937, and arrived in London on April 9, 94 hours and 17 minutes later, establishing a new world's record. This kit includes decals for the Kamikaze's markings.
