Mitsubishi 1MT Type 10, 1/50 UPC. Empire of Japan
The Type 10 torpedo bomber was designed by Sopwith designer Herbert Smith for the Japanese Navy.
Built in 1922, 20 were built, it was difficult to fly and it could not land on the carrier with the torpedo loaded. They were eventually scrapped.
Receiving this kit as a gift way back in the sixties , It never interested me to build it. I eventually gave it to my Dad, who when he retired began scale modeling, mostly scratch builds, When he was recalled to Mars in 2012, I managed to save it. I thought about refurbishing it but it’s to dang fragile. So, submitted for your approval. Type 10 Torpedo bomber UPC kit 1/50, from Marusan molds.
