Following on the heels of Pegaso’s Kamikaze pilot we have another unique bust – this time from Andrea Miniatures on this fascinating band of warriors.
The Divine Wind or Kamikaze as they were called – were a band of flyers and soldiers who swore an oath to defend their country by diving their aircraft straight into the enemy in an attack that saw them and their fuel and explosive laden aircraft taking not just their enemy but the pilot’s life.
This pictures here does remind me very much of the picture here of a Kamikaze pilot tying his hachimaki head scarf with the rising sun motif – though I suppose you could choose any of the slogans used by the Kamikaze pilots of the time.
This bust is available painted by Andrea’s craftsmen or unconstructed and unpainted in a kit with nine parts of white metal and two parts of resin.
This bust is now available from Andrea Miniature’s Distributors worldwide…
