70’s vintage Hasegawa 1/32 Ki-43 Hayabusa
Finished 15 years after her purchase is this 1/32 Hasegawa Ki-43-II Hayabusa. The old Hase kit is really showing it’s age, but now that I did all this work to this one, i’m sure a new tool release is not far off. It came with an Eduard photo etch set, I used a bunch of it on the interior and detailed that. Alclad II white aluminum base, Tamiya JAAF Green camo. Finished as an airplane represented in the Japanese 1944 film, “Kato Hayabusa Sentai”. NO decals were harmed in the making of this kit, all markings were sprayed on. In progress pics and the whole story can be seen in the “EMPIRE OF Japan” group build.
