The Hasegawa P-12E, done with kit decals for the B Flight leader of the 6th Pursuit Squadron in Hawaii, circa 1932-33. Kit was modified with a tail skid, and the wingtip lights were changed from the Navy version.
This is not a recently finished model but one of my favourites. This was built with the markings of 1/ NJG1 ( May 1945)
