Hasegawa 1:32 Nakajima Ki-43-III koh Hayabusa
September 13, 2014 in Aviation
Finished this one last week. Waited all week for the sun to shine so I could take some photographs.
The kit is Hasegawa’s 1:32 scale Ki-43-II Hayabusa that I converted into a Ki-43-III koh.
Modified the airscoop with putty, scratchbuilt a couple of exhaust pipes and that thing on it’s belly of Evergreen.
The plane is sprayed with Tamiya acrylics. IJA Green with a pinch of brown on top. Tamiya silver , titanium and alluminium for the bottomside.
Weathered with Revell enamel silver for the chipping, Revell sand colour for the tyres.
Vallejo washes were used and Tamiya weathering pastels.
39th fighter unit markings and number on tail are from a 1:32 Ki-61 Hien.
