Nakajima Ki-84 Hayate

December 14, 2012 · in Aviation · · 5 · 2.8K

This is the scale Nakajima kit, and represents a machine operating from Formosa in late 1944 and early 1945. I built this two years ago, and it was my first attempt at a kit in this scale, and my first attempt at a natural metal finish.

  1. Model looks great, loved the painting.

  2. Wow - how many of us all came up with the same scheme for this kit? Amazing. Very nice work (said as someone who built the same kit in the same scheme).

  3. Great finish-the blue is perfect.

  4. Yeah, this is one of those "everyones got one" marking schemes, but I really like it. I sold this model and will do another one in the same markings, but in 1/48.

    Thanks for the compliments!

  5. Great work on your NMF...whatcha use..?
