1/48 Nakajima KI43-III Hayabusa Oscar Limited Edition

1/48 Nakajima KI43-III Hayabusa Oscar Limited Edition

Emperor of the sky

In side profile, the Ki-43 looked exactly like the Japanese Zero. Both planes were light, fast and lethal, but it was the Ki-43 which shot down the most Allied aircraft. The plane's high speed and maneuverability made it a favorite of several Japanese Army Air Force aces, but its lack of armor made it vulnerable to counter fire. The Ki-43-III was an experimental design which used a larger engine and drop tanks to extend the fighter's range. Limited edition kit features resin engine parts and two IJAAF decals from 1945.

Decal Options:

  1. IJAAF 65th F.R. Metabaru A.F. Aug., 1945
  2. IJAAF 204th F.R. Code: 01 Taiwan Aug., 1945
