Aircraft dioramas in 1/48 scale are a trend now, there is no doubt about it and manufacturers like Hasegawa have understood this. Here''s a quick review by Jean-Luc Formery (TedMamere) of the their new Ki-45 Toryu with Isuzu fuel truck kit.

Thanks Jean-Luc and Chuck

Danke schn Steffen!

What do you think about the kit? I think it is great. If Hasegawa continues with such boxings I'm doomed!

About the Storch, I'm sure you won't be disappointed, it's a great kit!

Joyeux Nol!

Nice review.
Even nicer to see Hasegawa entering the 1/48 vehicle arena with the inclusion of another new kit, the Isuzu fuel truck. Perhaps a stand alone fuel truck and cargo truck are on the horizon to the 1/48th scale vehicle builders. Wouldn't take too much addition money to tool up a cargo body, and release them as a set.

Hi all

Great review and it certainly would make a great addition one's collection. It is good to see a unusual subject be mated with another unusual subject (take your pick which is which!) I see that Tamiya has jumped into the fray as well, or maybe they were first? http://www.greatmodels.com/~smartcart/cgi/display.cgi?item_num=TAM89732 This link obviously goes to Great Models web site.
