    It flies straight as board if you let the controls be. Love it.

    this looks very similar to the Me 163, but i can see how it is different
    reminds me of the Kikka and the Me 262

    @Flash0of0green Pretty sure that's getting close to 80 years ago now and I bet otayahiromo8211 had nothing to do with the decision. Also pretty sure Hitler wanted Europe for white people and wasn't all that interested in the rest of the world, and totally understood why the Japanese might want Asia. Of course they were wrong, but what's the relevance?

    Nice build, by the way, does J8M have the wind turbine (small propeller that acts as a generator) on the nose, like the Me 163?

    something i never understood is why the Japanese thought it was a good idea to ally themselves with Nazis when there leader was a tyrannical insane out of touch old man that more or less wanted to take over the world. that exactly what Lebensraum was about.

    Heheee... I know... I tested in another Shusui build a few years ago. And The Only Way for it to work, was to Put Small Wheels in the Skid... :D

    This aircraft was made just for flight test, so it has no guns.

    Also, I put wheels on skid because it crashes when landing without them.

    Fun fact:

    The name Shūsui was used as a poetic term meaning "Sharp Sword" deriving from the swishing sound of a sword.
