Papercraft Kitaro planes distributed by Japan Air Self-Defence Force

As we've reported before, Japan Air Self-Defence Force (JASDF) introduced three special design aircrafts featuring Kitaro and his friends from GeGeGe no Kitaro, commemorating the 50th anniversary of Miho Air Base.

Miho Base is located in Sakaiminato, Tottori, where the author Shigeru Mizuki was born, hence Kitaro recieved the honor to be the first anime character ever to adorn a JASDF aircraft.

Now there's some papercrafts of these planes you can download free from the base's website.

Read on for details and pics.
