F-15J Kai from Patlabor coming out.

I know there's a few anime fans on here so I thought I'd point this out. The 1993 anime film Patlabor 2 used some real world military aircraft as part of their story. Amongst them are the Japanese F-2, and heavily upgraded F-16s and F-15 Kai used by the JSDAF.  The F-15 Kai had canards, the tailplanes were angled out instead of vertical and thrust vectoring exhausts. A cool looking upgrade. Anyways, a model company is going to release a kit of the Kai later this year.  Sadly it's 1/144th scale.

The good news is I can use it as reference to scale up and build a 1/32 version. :D
