Hasegawa 1/32 Nakajima Ki-84 Hayate

By Matt McDougall


Though I've dogged Hasegawa in the past for a tendency to put in what seems like a somewhat antiseptic, just-enough-to-get-it-done engineering ethos, I have to say the Ki-84 is fantastic. Well detailed (mostly), extremely well-engineered, thoughtfully laid out and so on. I honestly think it'd take a Tamiya effort to unseat this one.

Aftermarket Used

The Frank is a solid kit, but it can definitely stand for improvement in some areas.
