Nice job, Darren. Your paint job and that scheme are very striking.

Great job, that looks really nice. But I have two correction suggestions.
The first is an important one and should hopefully be easy to implement: the fuselage band on Ki-44-II Otsu c/n 1435 was blue (with thin red borders), to signify that this ship belonged to the Shinten Seikutai (ramming flight) leader.
Secondly, the cannon did not have the conical fairing installed on this aircraft (although it may have been earlier on perhaps).
Please see attached photos and my profile illustration from "Ki-44 'Tojo' Aces" by Nicholas Millman, Osprey Publishing 2011.

Excellent work! I built the Ki-44-I last year, and it really is a delightful kit. And the Shoki reminds me of 1930s racing planes, what with its huge engine and stubby little wings.

Nice work on what can’t be an easy scheme. Have always liked the lines of this aircraft.

Knowing your penchant for T-bolts, I'm not surprised you tackled this, and also not surprised it came out looking immaculate! Well done. She's a real beauty.

Great looking paint scheme, really like it.

Next to the Zero the Ki-44 is one of the popular Japanese builds.
Darren, that's a smart,tight, build. Something that could easily be printed on the side of a manufactures box.
Two thumbs up.
