"The Kate"
woofdogmeow
This kit was disappointing The biggest tick off was the landing gear I wanted my gear up but The wheels are too large to fit in the wells. So I had to widen the wells and cut the landing gear cover to cover the rest of the wheel well as it comes only in the wheels down position. This is not my 1st scratch build so I got it to work The landing gear will be fine if you build them in the down postion. The engine assembly was not the best fitting but can be made to work. The painting chart is not great either as I was hoping to use the carrier decals akagi or Hiryu would be fine instead I have to mix paints to get the colors listed annoying So the red tail land based squadron is the easiest color scheme. The tail hook also had no hole in the fuselage attached it taking a best guess on the position. I would suggest getting another companies Kate this one isn't worth it.

 
"WWII Japanese Kate"

I started buying models of this company back in the early 70's at a time when Japanese products were shaking off the stigma of being cheap copies of American products. After all these years I finally got my Kate. This model has a fair number of pieces but fit together well. You can build it with the landing gear up or down. Armament includes a torpedo and a defensive machinegun in rear copit. The decals are nice. It would have been nice if there were crewmen or maybe the option of instead of the torpedo mounting a bomb such as the one that sank the Arizona.
