1/72 LS Mitsubishi Ki-46 “Dinah”
February 6, 2015 in Aviation
Mitsubishi Ki-46 “Dinah” Japanese Army Type 100-2 is the full name given on the old box. The “Dinah” was a recon/trainer aircraft, and one of WWII Japan’s nicest looking aircraft.
I continued my venture into WWII Japanese aircraft with this old 1/72 LS kit. For it’s time, it was a very nice kit, with fine engraving, and fairly nice detail, inside and out. The fit was surprisingly good, with very little filling to do. The box art attracted me because the colors were so different. The decals, as is the norm for these ancient kits, were shot. Luckily there weren’t very many that had to be substituted for. The clear parts seemed fairly thick in scale. It was an enjoyable build overall, and should look good next to my green/bare metal Ki-61.
