Revell kit with additional Japanese decals for J-BACC
45 days after Lindbergh's record flight the Japanese newspaper Mainichi Shinbun ordered an exact replica of the NYP from Ryan. The NYP-2, J-BACC, c/n 36 (for reasons unknown Ryan assigned no c/n to the NYP) was delivered to Japan in late September of 1927. It was then flown to Japanese national records for distance, 2000 km (1243 miles) and endurance, 13 hours, 23 minutes, by Fumeo Habuto who had to stay, mostly, under 304.8 m (1000 feet) due to poor weather on the measured circular course over central Honshu.
The NYP-2 carrying serial number 29 was registered as J-BACC and achieved a number of record-breaking flights early in 1928 before a crash ended its career."
