My Pacific Theatre build will be a Nakajima B6N2 'Tenzan' as described in the Rising decals sheet as flown by Capt. Masayuki Hida of the 551st Kokutai , 251st Hikotai ,Truk Islands June 1944.

Capt. Hida's aircraft Sporting the Japanese Characters on the rear fuselage of "Kami Kaze"
Usually translated as Divine Wind, the Aircraft mission in this case was not a Kamikaze attack.

I am not aware of any actual Photo of this aircraft, but one particular image has been attributed to being the subject aircraft reportedly captured from a short film, in an attack run at a US Aircraft carrier reported as CV-10 Yorktown.
