This item is limited to 3 per household.

- The product is made by a 3D printer.
- The kit includes 2 each of gunpowder rockets and special dollies.
- Two types of decals are included.

- The Shusui Gunpowder Rocket was a radio-guided surface-to-air missile planned by the Imperial Japanese Navy.
- In 1945, the Navy ordered the Civil Aviation Bureau to develop a special local fighter as a countermeasure against air raids on the Japanese mainland.
In response to this, the Civil Aviation Bureau decided to develop a radio-controlled anti-aircraft guided missile, and began development in March with engineer Yujiro Murakami as chief designer.
- Unlike normal anti-aircraft missiles, this missile did not carry explosives, but instead used the front of the aircraft as a ram to destroy enemy aircraft by ramming them, making it more like an unmanned aerial vehicle than a missile.
- The aircraft design is based on that of the Shusui rocket-powered local fighter, a tailless aircraft with swept-back wings of mixed wood and metal construction, for which reason it is called the "Shusui-style."
- The fuselage is bullet-shaped, with a strong, sharp structure at the fuselage tip and leading edge of the wing to act as a ram.
- It was propelled by a solid-fuel rocket, and after launching from a rail-mounted launch pad, the rocket would be ignited and it would ascend under radio guidance. In just under 100 seconds, it would reach an altitude of 9,000m, at which point it would ram an enemy aircraft, glide and land under radio guidance, and upon return, the rocket would be replaced and it would be reused.
- This aircraft was to be manufactured by Kawasaki Aircraft Corporation, but the end of the war came just as they had begun to draw up the production drawings, and the project was cancelled.
- Although this aircraft is unmanned, rough sketches remain that show what appears to be a manned version with a cockpit.
