The enemy "Emily"

With four engines, a gigantic wingspan, and bristling weapons stations, the H8K1 was an exceptional aircraft indeed. It could fly thousands of miles, land on water near small islands, refuel, and fly thousands of miles again. It could carry thousands of pounds of bombs. On its most daring raid, however, the H8K1 flew thousands of miles across the Pacific, refueled at French Frigate Shoals, and then struck a second blow against Hawaii just months after Pearl Harbor. Kit features new gun parts and decals for two versions.
