During the 2011 Tohoku earthquake, eighteen F-2s operated by the 21st squadron were damaged or destroyed at their base in Matsushima. Immediately thereafter the training duties of the squadron were parceled out to other units. After much effort and expense, however, the 21st is back! This detailed kit celebrates the unit's reactivation and the 40th anniversary of the unit. Limited edition kit features detailed photoetched parts plus a special 40th anniversary decal.
