The Kawasaki Ki-61 Hien (飛燕, "flying swallow") is a Japanese World War II fighter aircraft. Used by the Imperial Japanese Army Air Service, it was designated the "Army Type 3 Fighter" (三式戦闘機). Allied intelligence initially believed K[...]

Kawasaki Ki-61-I Hien, Tamiya 1/72

Finished this little kit in 2020. What can I say, this is the best kit I ever built, absolutely superb. No filling required. Painted with AK Real Colors and Alclad II paints.

Hasegawa Kawasaki Ki-61 Hien 1:48

Here is one I finished up last year ; its Hasegawa's 1/48 Ki-61-i Tei Hien . I bought it as part of a double boxing along with its sister Ki-100 I Otsu. I finished it up as a Chinese Nationalist aircraft just to have a different one from the u[...]

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 [...]

Fujimi 1/70 Kawasaki KI-61 Hien (Tony)

This ancient kit (note:1/70) was given to me by a "friend" who had no need to add this relic to his collection and chose not to throw it away. Since I had no WWII Japanese aircraft in my 1/72 collection, I thought I would play around with some [...]
