And now for something a little different…
And I do mean little! A friend in Japan sent me these a few years ago. They are Bandai kits in 1/100 scale, and yes, I had to assemble them, though they did come prepainted. I can’t even begin to imagine the power of the magnifier the guy who painted the Ki-61 used, as all the markings on that one are painted. The rest have decals. Panel line detail is recessed and is pretty darn good for being that small. Average wingspan is about three inches. I’ve never seen them for sale here, but you could probably find them online if you wanted one bad enough. For the price of one of the new Tamiya superkits, you could have a entire air force of these.
Shelf space is not a problem…. 🙂
