This is the Hasegawa kit in 1/72. It's not a bad model, although I did have some issues fitting the engine nacelles that required a bit of filling and sanding, otherwise things went together well. Chinese markings come from the spares box with the fin flash being masked and painted. Surprisingly, the colour picture which my build is based on shows the aircraft in a reasonable condition, thus I chose not to highlight all the panel lines, just those around the engines as they appeared a bit grimey. I am lacking some white numbers on the tail, I couldn't find small enough decals in the spares.
Hi All, My first completed kit in 2017: Kawasaki Ki-100-I Koh Type 5 Fighter from Hasegawa, 1:48th scale - white â€œ177â€ of the 2nd Chutai, 59 Sentai, Ashiya, Kiusiu near Fukuoka, 1945. I used Eduard's photoetched parts dedicated to this kit, in its interior as well as for the exterior of the model. Next are the wheel well covers, where I used a mix of photoetched and resin parts form QB. QB also produced the horizontal tail planes and exhaust stacks (not visible on the photos). Paints used here are Vallejo's White Aluminium, Tamiya's IJA Green, Gunze's H79 and IJA Green inside the

Cue the de rigeur shot of the box: And the reference material I picked up for the occasion: And what I hope will be the only aftermarket I purchase for this build: The seatbelts look impressive, but they've got me worried because you only get a lap belt and at least one Ki-61 build I've seen shows a shoulder harness as well, which doesn't come with this set. I'm still trying to ascertain if I have to add one, but if anyone knows please let me know.
Hi All, I have just finished the project, that distracted me a bit (together with several other projects) from my "the only right scale" Hien. The RS Models kit probably represents the production version of the Ki-61-II-Kai, armed with 2 x 12.7 mm (.50 in) machine guns in the wings and 2 x 20 mm cannon in the fuselage. In this version it returned to the wings of the Ki-61-I-Tei, fuselage was extended by 220 mm, vertical tail was enlarged, and it used Ha-140 engine, the equivalent of DB-605. The machine, which my miniature is meant to represent, apparently was deprived of machine guns
