- 1/48 Salmson 2A2 Japanese (Otsu 1) (Gas Patch Models)

--The French Salmson 2A2, which was imported in 1919 for the teaching materials of the Fall Education Corps, was officially adopted by the Army as a Sa-type type 2 reconnaissance aircraft, and 51 aircraft were imported in 1921 for type B type 1 reconnaissance. It was renamed as a machine.
――At the same time, the Army started domestic production of this aircraft, and after completing the first domestically produced aircraft at the end of 1920 under the pretext of repair, the Air Supply Department produced about 300 aircraft.
――At this time, the Army had acquired the license manufacturing right for the engine, but did not acquire the manufacturing right for the aircraft, and was later protested by Salmson for patent infringement, but Kawasaki finally stood in between. Reconciled the two.
――It is said that about 300 aircraft were produced at the Army Artillery Arsenal, but there are several documents that say that this is incorrect.
--In addition, the Kawasaki Shipyard Airplane Department, which was aiming to enter the airplane field, also obtained a license for both the engine and the aircraft, and received instructions from the Army for domestic production, and completed two prototypes in 1922, after which in 1927. By now, about 300 aircraft have been produced.
――This aircraft was the first mass-produced aircraft in Kawasaki, and the total number of aircraft produced in Japan was about 900 (600 excluding the production of the artillery arsenal, which is considered to be an error), which was a record at that time. It was a great production number.
――Until the appearance of the 88-type reconnaissance aircraft in 1928, it was active as a main reconnaissance aircraft, and was used by front line units until around 1933.
――Some aircraft participated in the Manchurian Incident and the January 28 Incident, and after retiring from the front line, many aircraft were sold to the private sector and used by flight schools and newspaper companies.

――It is a completely new mold kit.
――Three types of Japanese army decals are included.
――When completed, the total length will be about 118 mm and the total width will be about 163 mm.
