1/48 Ki-45 TORYU (Nick)

This is Hasegawa’s 1/48 scale Ki-45 TOYRU Japanese Heavy fighter. The kit was detailed with the CMK resin cockpit detail kit. The camouflage was all hand painted. I used the kit decals for the Manchukuo Air Corps.

    Dave! Nice work. Glad to see we’re still crossing paths. I’m getting back into this hobby and enjoying it more and more. I expect I’ll see you at some shows again. Stay in touch, I need a mentor!

  4. Now, that is a cool camo scheme! When you say “by hand”, I assume it involved a lot of masking, right?
    Great looking build!

    • No masking. All by free hand.
