Otaki 1/48 Ki43 “Oscar”
Another “whiffie” racer…..these old kits are FUN. and inexpensive. I added a “modern” pilot, cleaned up the the fuselage, and clipped the wings. Looks very lightweight and fragile. The stripes are painted over decals, copied from a Hasegawa 1/72 B-47. The wing markings were masked and sprayed. Overall, a fun build, and the results aren’t bad..
