ICM Nakajima Ki-27 “Nate” of Capt Hyoe Yonaga in 1/72nd Scale

Here is another ICM Nakajima Ki-27-II, this time in the markings of Captain Hyoe Yonaga, leader of the 2nd Chutai of the 24th Sentai stationed in the Philippines during December 1941 – January 1942.  Yonaga was a 16-victory ace from the Nomonhan Incident but saw no combat in the Philippines.  His aircraft is interesting because of the field applied camouflage, and unusual for a 24 Sentai machine in having five stripes on the rudder rather than the usual four.
