Hasegawa 1/32 Ki-44 Tojo

By Simon Hutton

I used Alclad Airframe Aluminium overall (I had issues with it peeling off when removing masking) and picked out panels with Alclad Aluminium. The control surfaces and anti-glare were airbrushed with Tamiya acrylics. The hinomarus and numbers were masked with Frisket film and airbrushed. I used watercolour washes for the panel lines and gave the undersides a light dusting with pigments and heavily diluted Tamiya acrylics. This kit was an OOB with the only addition being a Finemolds seat harness.

This was the first 1/32 build in my move away from 1/48. My only previous 1/32 builds were the Hasegawa Spitfire years ago.
