Kawmaori is correct with the upgrades of fighters.

A Bi-plane was remade into the Grumman Wild Cat which became the Hell Cat, then the Tiger Cat and Bear cat.

You can see the design similarities between all the different versions yet basically they all came from a Navy Bi-plane.

You don't see that a lot in anime or Sci-fi.

The 1/55 reissues ended up

The 1/55 reissues ended up being real shelf warmers in Japan so I think they're less enthusiastic about putting out a product if it just sits on the shelves.
