- Reproduce the planning machine with your own interpretation that you can enjoy because it is a model

- During World War II, many new weapons were created due to advances in science and technology.
- Even so, at the end of World War II, development plans and programs were being advanced in each country, and if the end of the war had been delayed for several years, some of these planned weapons might have actually been created. Rocket Models' Fist of War series creates plans and paper plans based on such hypotheses.
- This aircraft is a high-speed bomber for the Japanese Army that was developed and manufactured by Tachikawa Aircraft at the end of the war using technology brought from Germany during the war.
- Worked in conjunction with the landing force during the counter-landing operation on Saipan Island, which was occupied by the Allied Forces.
- They caused damage to the B-29s and facilities that marked the Saipan airfield.

- The Ki74-II Otokai is a high-speed bomber for the Japanese Army, developed and manufactured by Tachikawa Aircraft at the end of the war using technology introduced by German submarines.
- It was being developed as a long-range reconnaissance aircraft for the Soviet Union, which was considered one of the de facto enemy countries, but its specifications were changed midway through to a high-speed bomber capable of strategic bombing.
- Since this [Otsukai] demonstrated better performance than expected in test flights, the Imperial Headquarters made a plan for a counter-landing on Allied-controlled Saipan in cooperation with the ground landing force.
- A total of 14 of these aircraft were actually manufactured and deployed to independent squadrons.
- During the Saipan Reverse Landing Operation, the 2nd Independent Squadron acted as the lead bomber and caused extensive damage to the parked B-29s and the runway, but they returned despite being supported by sufficient escort aircraft. Only three aircraft did.
- The reason for this is unknown, as many officials have remained silent other than to state that it was not a problem with the aircraft, but there is a belief within the Graduate School of Military History that even if the new American bomb were to be used at the cost of life, it would not be possible. It is said that this was probably due to the pilot's intention to confirm the destruction.
- After the war, there were numerous documentary programs that stated that if it were not for this aircraft and Kabuto Kai's role in the Saipan Reverse Landing Operation, Japan could have become the first country in human history to drop nuclear bombs on humans. However, most of the programs end with the conclusion that the United States would never have used nuclear weapons against humans anyway.

[About the model]
- This is a new fictitious airplane model that joins Rocket Models' Fist of War series, which creates unique interpretations and considerations based on fictitious themes such as what-ifs.
- This is a plastic model assembly kit that reproduces the Ki-74-II, a high-speed bomber deployed and operated by the Japanese Army at the end of World War II using technology brought from Germany.
- The scale is 1/48 and models the [Otsu Kai] type of Ki74-II.
- The tailless aircraft shape accurately reproduces its design.
- The air brake can be set to open or close, including the flap installation angle.
- Also, the internal details of the cockpit are well reproduced.
- The underside of the fuselage is of course reproduced inside the bomb bay, and one Type 3 Type 1 No. 5 bomb stored inside is also modeled and can be stored inside.
- In addition, you can choose to open or close the landing gear doors, and you can choose between parked and flight states when assembling.
- Set markings such as Hinomaru and Shikon characters with decals.
- This is a kit full of the charm of a model that would give you the idea of what would happen if the plan had come true.

[Product Specifications]
- Japanese Army Ki74-II Otsu Kai is reproduced on 1/48 scale with Fist of War's unique interpretation.
- Details inside the cockpit and bomb bay are also reproduced.
- Bomb bay hatch can be opened or closed. Type 3 - One No. 5 bomb (SC1000 same type) can be stored in the bomb.
- The basic specifications are in parked condition, but flight condition can also be assembled.
- Each hatch, landing gear, etc. can be selected between parked state and flight state.
- Air brake, flap angle, etc. can be selected to open or close.
- The number of parts is small, the details and fitting are excellent, and assembly is easy. Comes with Cartograph decals.
