IJN Kaga carrier photo #1
IJN Kaga was completed as aircraft-carrier in 1928. The ship has two main hangar decks and a third auxiliary hangar with
a total capacity of 60 aircraft. Her air group consists of 12 Mitsubishi Type 10 1MF fighter (+4 spares) fighters,
24 Mitsubishi Type 13 B1M3 attack aircraft (+4 spares)  and 12 Mitsubishi Type 10 2MR reconnaissance aircraft (+4 spares).
However, IJN Kaga doesn’t  get her aircraft aboard before November 1929. No catapults are fitted.
Her arresting gear is the British longitudinal wire system.

NI-203 is the A1N1 version and was flown from carrier Kaga during First Chinese Incident, 1932.
The Nakajima A1N, or Navy Type 3 Carrier Fighter was a Japanese carrier based fighter of the late 1920s and early '30s.
It was a licensed copy of the British Gloster Gambet fighter, built by the Nakajima Aircraft Company for
the Imperial Japanese Navy. Approximately 150 were built in total.
By 1926, the Imperial Japanese Navy's Mitsubishi 1MF fighters (also known as Type 10 Carrier Fighters)
were in need of replacement and so it asked three of the leading Japanese aircraft manufacturers,
Nakajima, Mitsubishi and Aichi for proposals for a new carrier based fighter.

NI-204 is the A1N1 version and was flown from carrier Kaga during First Chinese Incident, 1932.
Nakajima purchased from the British company Gloster Aircraft a license for production of their Gloster Gambet,
a private venture by the company for a carrier based derivative of the Gloster Gamecock.
The first prototype Gambet was built by Gloster and flew on 12 December 1927.
The prototype Gambet was shipped to Japan early in 1928.
After modification and fitted with a Nakajima built Bristol Jupiter engine, the Gambet was evaluated by the Japanese
navy against the competitors from Aichi and Mitsubishi, proving more manoeuvrable and a stable gun platform.
It was selected in April 1929 as the Navy Type 3 Carrier Fighter, with the short designation A1N1. Nakajima built 50 A1N1s

NI-210 is the A1N1 version and was flown from carrier Kaga during First Chinese Incident, 1932.
The A1N1 entered service in 1929, replacing the Mitsubishi type 10 (1MF).
It served on the carriers Hosho, Akagi, Kaga and Ryujo.
The improved A1N2 entered service in 1930, with production continuing until 1932.
The A1N1 and A1N2 flew from the carriers Hosho and Kaga during the Shanghai Incident in 1932
between Japan and China. A1Ns from Kaga scored the Imperial Japanese Navy's first air-to-air combat victory on
22 February 1932 when they shot down a Boeing P-12 flown by the American volunteer pilot Robert Short.
A1Ns continued in service until 1935, being replaced in service by the Nakajima A2N1 or Navy Type 90 Carrier Fighter.

NI-236 is the A1N2 version and was flown by a shotaicho Lt. Nogiji Ikuta, from carrier Kaga during First Chinese Incident, 1932.
The A1N2 was an improvement of the A1N1 version, with the 450 hp Nakajima Kotobuki 2 engine, which was
introduced during 1930. Production of approximately 100 was completed in 1932.
The Gambet was a single seat, single bay biplane, of all wooden construction and powered by a Bristol Jupiter radial engine.
While similar to the Gamecock, it was fitted with internal flotation bags and arrestor hooks to allow carrier operation
and longer span wings.

When Japan became involved in the Shanghai Incident, so did Japan's A1N2 fighters, the first Japanese fighters
to engage in combat. On 22 February, 1932, three A1N2s from the aircraft carrier Kaga, led by Lieut Nogiji Ikuta,
flying from the land base in Shanghai, shot down a Boeing P-12 flown by the American pilot Robert Short,
after two minutes of combat. On 26 April, during an attack on Hangchow airfield, A1N2s scored several victories
and probable on Chinese flown aircraft, making it the classic fighter during the Shanghai Incident.

NI-306 was flown by a wingman. When the Shanghai Incident broke out in January 1932 the carriers Kaga and Hosho
were in Chinese waters and the Imperial Japanese Navy's 1st Air Wing deployed 32 Type 13 Carrier Attack Aircraft
against targets in and around Shanghai. On 5 February, 1932 two Mitsubishi Type 13s escorted by three Nakajima
Type 3 Carrier Fighters were engaged in aerial combat with some Chinese Vought Corsairs. While on 22 February,
1932, over Soochow, three Mitsubishi Type 13-3s, escorted by three Nakajima Type 3-2 (A1N2) Carrier Fighters
from the Kaga were attacked by a single Chinese Boeing Model 218 (export version of the Boeing P-12E), flown by
the American volunteer pilot Robert Short. The Boeing was shot down by the combined fire of the Japanese fighters.
The bomber unit commander Lt. Susumu Kotani, was killed and his radio-operator/gunner, A1c Sasaki, was badly
injured. However, the pilot ACPO Yoshiro Sakinaga flew the aircraft back to its base at Shanghai.

This beautifull model kit shows the standard marking of the IJNAF aircraft: red Hinomarus in all six positions
and a manufactured stencil painted on the left side of the rear fuselage bellow the horizontal tail. The individual
aircraft identification marking was aplied in white on both sides of the fin and in black on the fuselage sides.
The marking was repeated in black across the up side of the top wing and on the both the left and right side on
the down surface of the lower wing. The identification marking consisted of two parts, one Katakana sillable
indicating the carrier ( "ni" = Kaga") and three Arabic digits indicating the individual aircraft, -325, a carrier bomber.

IJN Kaga was relegated to reserve status on 20 October 1933 to begin a second major reconstruction.
On 25 June 1934, at Sasebo Naval Yard, carrier IJN Kaga’s reconstruction is officially started.
Kaga returned to service in 25 June 1935 and was assigned to the Second Carrier Division. The carrier embarked a new set of aircraft, including
16 Nakajima A2N2 and A2N3 Type 90 fighters, 16 Aichi D1A1 Type 94 dive bombers, and 28 Mitsubishi B2M2 Type 89 torpedo bombers.

The production aircraft, given the designation of Navy Type 94 Carrier Bomber or Aichi D1A1, differed from the
prototype as the production model had a Townsend ring around the engine cylinders, a five degree sweep back
of both wings, a modified rudder and a fixed tail wheel. Armament consisted of two 7.7mm machineguns firing
forward and a flexible 7.7mm machine gun firing to the rear. The plane could carry two 66-lb bombs under the
wings and one 551lb bomb on a swing down yoke under the fuselage. The first 118 aircraft were powered by
the 580hp Nakajima radial with the last 44 aircraft being powered by a slightly better rated Nakajima radial.

Total production of the B2M1 and B2M2 amounted to 205 aircraft.
It is said not to have been a worthwhile undertaking by Mitsubishi, who found the new constructional techniques
very costly, compared with the machine's wooden predecessor. In addition, the unreliability og Japanese-built engines
is believed to have led to a number of fatal accidents. Both variants served aboard the carriers Ryujo, Akagi and Kaga
from 1933 until the Sino-Japanese war of 1937. Small numbers of Type 89 Attack Aircraft participated in campaigns
during the Shanghai Incident. Others were operational on the Japanese mainland with the Tateyama and Omura Air
Corps and as carrier trainers. Some of the Type 89s were donated to the Navy through the Hokoku program, and, later
the Type 89 design was released by the Navy as a civilian conversion, the Mitsubishi Type 89 General Purpose Aircraft.
