This a re-release of Aoshima’s Taiyo model from the 1970s rather than a new kit, but this issue does have a new camouflage decal to help reproduce late war camouflage as well as some photo etched parts to enhance the flight deck catapult. The airgroup sprues included are newer toolings.

The Taiyo is listed by Hobbylink Japan at https://hlj.com/product/AOS05489 and can be preordered for ¥2,560 (about US$24.00).
