Yamashita Shunya “nose art girl” PVC announced

I did a double take when I first read the title of the listing for Yamashita Shunya’s Nose Art girl figure at Getchu this morning, but a look at the source image makes it clear that the “nose” in question isn’t that of a creatively adorned human but rather a creatively adorned fighter plane. She originally appeared as a pinup poster in volume 4 of Ikaros Publishing’s MC Akushizu quarterly moe mecha/military magazine (she also appears in the recently released Wild Flower artbook).

The figure is 1/7 scale (22 cm tall) with production from goods maker Runa (Amiami search), and scheduled to retail at 7,140 yen in late September. Sample images reveal that she’s an upper body castoff, and she wields an optional 12.7 mm M2 Browning machine gun. The sculptor is uncredited in Getchu’s listing. Figure images below:

As we’ve come to expect with this series the result is very favorable indeed:
