Built by Kugisho.
Captured in Japan during November or December
1945. Shipped to the United States for technical evaluation.
Shipped to NAS Alameda, where it was photographed there on December 22, 1945, without engine or air scoops. Sometime later, US Navy personnel added dummy rocket tubes to make the aircraft look like a Model 11. For a time, it was displayed at NAS Alameda.
Transferred it to the National Air Museum on April 15, 1948 and displayed at the Smithsonian Arts and Industries Building until the early 1970s when moved to NASM
Paul Garber Facility. Restoration staff began working on the aircraft in January 1994. They had to fabricate the missing air scoops, install an engine, rebuild the cockpit, make minor repairs to the skin and airframe, and repaint. The restoration was completed in 1997.
Stored in the NASM
Paul Garber Facility, before placed on public display at the NASM
Udvar-Hazy Center during December 2003.
