AZ 1/48 Ki-48I “Lily”

Oddly misshapen and a labor to build. One of two kit options,this example fought in the CBI theater, based somewhere in Thailand, 1943. The other kit option, another Thailand based Ki-48 , was evidently shot down over Rangoon by the AVG. Some say this kit would have been better served by being shot down over Rangoon as well…Happy New Year!

  1. After all of the griping online about this kit, you’ve proven that it can be built crisp and beautiful, Bryan. Fantastic paint work- did you apply the striped camoflage freehand? If so, then you’ve demonstrated excellent control over the airbrush here.

  2. Nice job! I never thought I would actually see one of those built.

  3. Yes, terrible kit becomes superb model. Excellent work on the finish.
