  • The Mitsubishi G4M “Betty” was a twin-engine, long-range bomber aircraft utilized by the Imperial Japanese Navy during World War II. One particular aircraft from the Takao Kokutai (air group), stationed in the Philippines in 1941, holds a unique place in history. The G4M “Betty” played a pivotal role in the early stages of the war, carrying out missions in various conflicts across the Pacific.
  • In December 1941, just hours after the attack on Pearl Harbor, G4M “Betty” bombers from the Takao Kokutai were involved in the surprise aerial assault on the US-held Clark Air Base in the Philippines. This attack aimed to neutralize American airpower in the region and enable Japan to secure its conquests in Southeast Asia. The “Betty” bombers showcased their range and bombing capabilities, proving to be a formidable threat.
  • The G4M continued to be utilized in subsequent campaigns, including the Battle of Midway and the Solomon Islands campaign. Its long range made it suitable for maritime reconnaissance, level bombing, and torpedo attacks against enemy ships. However, the aircraft faced vulnerabilities due to its lack of defensive armament and armor protection, earning it the nickname “flying lighter” among its crews. Despite these shortcomings, the G4M remained a key component of the Japanese naval air force until the latter stages of the war.
  • This 1:144 scale pays homage to this iconic aircraft and the brave aviators who flew it. Display this meticulously crafted model to commemorate the history of the Takao Kokutai and their vital contributions during World War II. Relive the daring missions and pivotal moments of the Pacific theater with this finely detailed replica that captures the essence of the G4M “Betty” in its Philippines-based operations.
