Hobby Master's 1:72 scale BN5 Kate is constructed almost entirely from diecast metal, with a large, solid metal wing that dominates the model. The multi-piece configurable canopy has two opened covers and a removable rear-facing machine gun. The front and side instrument panels are pad-printed and crisp panel lines can be seen across the surface of the model. Other fine details include simulated fabric-stretched control surfaces on the wing and elevators and cooling fins that can be seen inside the radial engine. Variants in this series include the B5N1 and the improved B5N2, configured as either a torpedo bomber, with a removable torpedo, or a dive bomber with several bomb load configurations.
