This one is finished in fictional markings for an aircraft flown by Kaneyoshi Muto, a Japanese fighter ace who´s been credited with 35 kills, 4 of them being B-29.

  1. Nice looking little bug

  2. Very unusual construction. I was surprised by the fact that it really exists. Nice work. Best regards.

  3. Great job 😀
    I built that kit a while ago and there are a couple of fit issues, but you seem to have taken care of those nicely. Everything looks really neat!

    Super-cool subject !

  4. I have always liked the shape of this aircraft. You have done a great job on this one. Well done!

  5. Another nice build.

  6. Un bonito avión de diseño muy exótico pero con una aerodinámica muy limpia en vuelo, con el tren recogido. Veo un modelo bien ejecutado y pintado. Éstos modelos llaman la atención dentro
    de las colecciones de aviones que vamos elaborando con el tiempo. Bien hecho Francisco !
