Hasegawa 1/48 Nakajima Ki-27b (pilot- K.Shimada)

Hello everyone! I want to introduce you to the latest work – the Japanese fighter Nakajima Ki-27, a member of the military conflict in Khalkhin-Gol. He piloted the aircraft commander of the 1st Squadron of the 11th Regiment Kenji Shimada. Catchy version of my attention, plus the addition was found confirming the picture.

On a model I can say this – this is not the best model Hasegawa)). The wings and fuselage did not want to dock and canopy did not get up in his place, but … the whole building took only 10 days- really wanted her to do.
The result is in front of you, enjoy!))

  1. Gorgeous. Really looks good.

  2. Looks great !! Perfect weathering.

  3. Great looking model. We don’t see enough Japanese types here, so this is a welcome addition.

  4. Maxim, I believe this kit and a couple others were put out in Japan by Mania, and the molds then went to Hasegawa, who have released them multiple times. In 1/48, this, the F4U-4, and the Shiden. In 1/72nd, another KI-27, Lily twin engine light bomber, Babs (also as the “Kamikaze” record breaker), Sonia, and Kate. In my opinion, Mania were ahead of their time, though I suspect the molds are now getting a little long in the tooth.

  5. Stunning build, great paint job and weathering ! And its really well photographed. Congratulations !

  6. I wholeheartedly echo Bernd’s assessment above; exactly what I was thinking.

  7. That looks great!

  8. Absolutely stunning, Maxim!
    What paints did you use?

  9. beautifully painted and weathered – great work!

  10. Greetings :
    I am in par with Bernd and Craig, and from what I have seen in the short time I have been here, not much Japanese types here like Rob stated.
    You have done a very nice job and the photography is very well done, to be honest … it looks like the pictures one would find on the sides of a kit box, very good.

  11. Nice ! Well photographed !

  12. Very well painted and weathered, not just the exhaust staining, but also the faded reds, really good.

  13. Beautifully done, and that canopy is immaculate.

  14. very nice effect

  15. Very nice indeed.

  16. Great work Maxim, very good finishing, and some great pics.

  17. Thank you, colleagues, for the appreciation of my work!
    But this Ki-27- is only the first part of his plan. In a couple of it is I-153 or I-16. Khalkhin Gol! ))

  18. Maxim, looking forward to it, don’t see much about Khalkin Gol, though I understand there were literally hundreds of aircraft taking part in single engagements. LAGG-3, or was that later?

  19. That’s a great job. Love the colour scheme.

  20. Maxim….you’ve done.fine work on this “oldie but goodie”

  21. Really stunning, Maxim. “an oldie but a goodie.”

  22. Very nice piece of modeling! And as others have already said – great photography also!
