1⁄48Kawasaki Ki-61 II-Kai
The RS kit is not easy compared to the Hasegawa model, but it does offer one of the most beautiful « Hien ». I have used the Brengun photoetch set plus a Falcon canopy as the kit’s one is rather poor.
The whole model was riveted and it depicts a plane of the 56th Sentai, the only unit known to have used this model operationally. The undsersides are natural aluminium and the upper surfaces paintes in Gunze H-304 to simulate the late war color yellow green#7. H-81 Kaki and oils paints were used for weathering, the peeled paint was gained with the hairspray technique.
Best regards from France, Jean.
