1/48 Hasegawa Ki-45

December 30, 2012 · in Aviation · · 4 · 2K

This was finished earlier this year. It is essentially OOB with the exception of the seat belts, which I made myself. The markings on the aircraft belong to the 53rd Sentai, a unit assigned to defending Japan from attacking B-29s in 1945. The decals are from an old Aeromaster set.

  1. Very nice Toryu, Seth. Your choices on the exterior colors and finish look like a great match for the few available color photos of such machines. I certainly like the Home Defense scheme and your Ki-45 displays it wonderfully.

  2. I'll second Erik's assessment, Seth...nice job on that paint scheme and the detail/weathering job.
