Nakajima Ki-44II Otsu Shoki (Tojo)

  • move
This is the second 32nd Hasegawa Shoki that I have build this year. The kit goes together very nicely without any problems. The kit was built out of the box with a couple of small additions, I used the small bonus photo etch fret that was supplied in Japan's Scale Aviation magazine that is published November 2009 issue. I also added a small amount scratch detail in the ways of control cables in the cockpit, brake lines on the landing gears, wiring the ignition on the engine and drilling out the tail wheel fork.

Interior was painted using a custom mix of Tamiya acrylics and the bare metal finish was done using Mr Color Super Metallic range. All the unit markings and Hinomaru's are painted on with Tamiya acrylics by using a set of Warpigs Paint Masks, no decals were used. Chipping on the airframe was with a pin and on the propeller was done using a silver pencil.

My chosen scheme is for 2nd Chutai, 47th Hiko Sentai, Narimasu Airfield

Hi!! I am from Wellington, New Zealand. I got back into modeling back in January 2005. I am mainly interested in World War 2 aircraft and RNZAF during that period too. I mainly build in 1/48 but do have a few 1/32 kits. I am also starting to build a few 1/32 World War 1 aircraft also!

Fantastic job on the metal finish showing the panel color variation. The weathering looks just right!
