Tamiya Nakajima Ki-84 Hayate "Frank" 1/72


Recommended Posts

I built this in the current Interceptor GB here on BM, link to WIP below

 

 

I've had this kit for years hence the RIKO label on the box, I really enjoyed doing the paint job, I hope you like it, let me know what you think.

 

Cheers Pat

Hi Pat,

 

I missed this build, or more likely forgot bout it, in the GB.

And it happened again: I jumped out of my skin when I saw the words Jockney and Tamiya next to each other!!!!  Impossible!

You are more the obscure Chinese vacform type!

But the end result s smashing and the paint scheme is really impressive!

Congrats!!!!

I built this kit many years ago, but I did stick to a reasonable green over grey scheme... Unlike some mavericks I know.

 

Super build!

Cheers mate.

Love that. The paint job must have demanded infinite patience.

Great rendition of the Hayate Pat! Superb blotching. It's obvious that for Japanese planes a brush is still the best tool.

Great job on the ancient kit, if I remember rightly it has a retracting u/c !

You are absolutely correct @Wulfman except that like a muppet not having instructions I didn't install the U/c before joining the wings together  :banghead:

 

Cheers Pat

Totally inspiring!

My interests have rather swerved towards Japanese WW2 aircraft of late; and you have pulled off an excellent result from quite an old kit.  Thanks for posting!

:clap2::thumbsup:
