Fujimi Nakajima Ki-43 Hayabusa 隼 “Oscar” of the 47th Independent Chutai in 1/72 Scale

Pictures of both sides of the same aircraft are uncommon, and especially so for operational JAAF aircraft.  Here is an exception, a Ki-43-I of the 47th Independent Chutai operating from Chofu in the Summer of 1943.  The white bands under the Hinomaru are home defense markings.  Except for the Kagero decals on the tail, the rest of the markings are painted on.  No chipping visible on the markings, but the whole model was dirtied up with a touch of light tan mixed in with the flat final coat.

I have included two original photographs for comparison.
