Second kit off the workbench this month; this is the Nakajima Ki-44 IIb Shoki (Tojo) mount of Japanese Army ace, Captain Yoshio Yoshida from mid 1945, complete with six B-29 kill markings:

These 1970s Hasegwa kits are superb and still set the standard in terms of surface detail and buildability.

Nice! The Japanese equivalent of the P-47 one assumes....Very smartly done indeed

Great stuff, Fred, that's another excellent build of a classic kit.

I never realised what a brute this one is in the flesh. Lovely build, Fred.
