This is the Hasegawa model 1/72 scale N1K2-J Shiden Kai nicknamed "George" by the allies. The Shiden Kai was probably the last fighter produced by Japan in WWII which was better than the zero as it was able to match newer modern U.S. fighters such as Corsair's, Hellcat's and P-51 Mustang's.

This model is quite good for its fitting and very less putty was needed to build the aircraft. The final result was made using chipping effects to make the aircraft weathered and realistic.  Overall I enjoyed the build and hope to build more Japanese WWII fighters in the future.

Thanks to admin and viewers do enjoy the pictures.
