Greetings Folks,

May I present you my latest built Microace Ki-67 Peggy 1/72 (LS molding) The kit is a bit dated but was truly fun to build? The two most challenging parts were masking the glass panels and trying to match the color. The masking took me a whole day, it was a lot of work for a few minutes of painting. For the paint, I did lots of trial and errors, first I thought I should go for the green but some I see brownish olive. So I settled for the brownish olive if incorrect my apologies. The kit was over-engineered for its time for sure, and in some places it was tricky but the fit was awesome. I will keep it short so, here it is

That's something you don't see very often.  Very nice.

Well done.  Your patience with the masking paid handsome rewards.  The weathering is equally superb. :goodjob:

Congratulations I have the same kit which I just looked up on scalemates is actually from 1966, and that was apparently a rebox !

The pictures on the kits boxes over the years seem to be all different colours so yours is definitely not only the right colour but has really shown how well this kit turns out.

Ladies and gentlemen this one needs dragging from the stash and following @tomthounaojam excellent example 

 

Cheers Pat

Beautifully done.  However, the kit is 1/75.  I knew that the original release was, but was caught out by a re-release in the 80/90s which I assumed was a new kit.

That's a very nice build of an interesting combat plane. I like the olive-brown colour you used (looks spot-on) and your treatment of the green houses. Very well done!

Indeed, Japanese aircraft other than Zero or Ki-43 are hard to see. Thanks

Masking was really hard some of the glazing didn't had proper lines I guess the mould must have been worn out? Thanks for the kind words

@JOCKNEY Thank you Pat, it is from 1966 that is the first thing I notice when i open the box. Darn!!! it is as old as my father. True, the colors seem to varied with time and there is hardly any reference image of the aircraft in color and none survived the post war? I tried the interweb but can't seem to find a one. The color, I was little apprehensive when I uploaded here, but will all the positive feedback am really happy about it. Thank you for the kind feedback, really appreciate it. Cheers

Thanks Wulfman. I will try to build the solid nose in future too, kind of like the way the aircraft look. Cheers!!!

I confess in my ignorance of Japanese aircraft I opened this thread to remind myself what the Ki-67 looked like- but now I'm here it's a very impressive model. Again not my area but the olive shade looks 'right' to my eyes :)

Lovely work. I always think the cockpit framing is one of the most important areas on a model to get right. The time you have spent masking the clear areas has paid dividends. The end result is excellent,

Pete
