Hasegawa 1/32 Nakajima Ki-44 II "Shoki"
By Olivier Barles
Here are a few pictures of my second 1/32 scale Nakajima Ki-44 from Hasegawa.
A few years ago, I already posted on LSP photos of my first "Shoki" (I put one of them in this current list) but this time, I wanted to paint it in the colors of Captain Inayama Hideoki, from the 2nd Chutai of the 87th Sentai based next to Tokyo in February 1945.
This "all black Shoki" with the bright red of the hinomaru applied on their white stripes creates an amazing look.
Even though I realized after I took the pictures that I had forgotten to put the number "white 25" on the sides of the landing gear doors...
Nevertheless, I am quite pleased with the result.
