The Kyūshū J7W Shinden was a World War II Japanese propeller-driven prototype fighter with wings at the rear of the fuselage, a nose-mounted canard, and pusher engine. Developed by the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) as a short-range, land-based interceptor, the J7W was a response to Boeing B-29 Superfortress raids on the Japanese home islands. For interception missions, the J7W was to be armed with four forward-firing 30 mm type 5 cannons in the nose.

The Shinden was expected to be a highly maneuverable interceptor, but only two prototypes were finished before the end of war. A jet engine–powered version was considered, but never even reached the drawing board.

Note: pictures were taken using a prototype model. Some details may differ from the actual product.

This unique internal structure that dispenses with the one-shot frame means that you can develop the internal structure as you please depending on your own plans. Why not combine it with the special bonus figures and create a diorama?
