Kawasaki Ki-61 Hien / Tony, Otaki
My second post features and old Otaki Ki-61 (from the mid-70s). It’s a very basic kit, but it goes together well, and seems accurate in scale and shape. I think there is a lot of life in the 1970s Japanese kits, even though the lack of detail is noted.
Kit is straight out of box and represents a 68th Sentai aircraft captured in New Guinea in mid-1944. It is cool airplane and well deserving of its faux Italian code name “Tony”.
