Bought off eBay. Older Hasegawa kit:

Builds rather easily for such an old kit. Painting is spray silver with hand painted camouflage markings. Decals are straight from the kit.

Excellent! I like the 'mottling' effect on top of the silver, not easy at all to do

Nice job, PMM. Did those old Hase decals behave themselves? I've had trouble with their older decals in the past.

Yes Shaun, they worked out alright. I too have had problems with Hasegawa's old decals in the past. But for this build, they worked as advertised.

Thank you for asking.

That's a nicely done Tojo, great mottle.

That's a nicely done build, Allan. I haven't built a Ki-44 for my 1/72 Japanese aircraft collection, nor have I tried the mottling on natural finish before. Your build may cause me to change all that. ;-)

Nice work. Got this one somewhere in the deep stash as well. That field-applied green dappling looks good.

Very well finished indeed. The camouflage is really good. Another old kit well presented.
