Erickson Collection in Madras, OR has one (IIRC, the only airworthy example).  Is in the original "squiggle" paint, well worn.  Only problem is was re-engined to a P&W since original engine was impossible to find.

Nice.  I always thought the Oscar would have been a great sport plane.

Very nicely done. Not overdone on the chipping, but just enough.

Yeah, really nice work there!!! And the Ki-43 wasn't that big a plane in real life so she's a natural in 1/32nd.

Mrs. Toshi just purchased for me a Tamiya 1/48 Ki-61 via eBay, when it arrives, as always, I’ll do a WIP.  Thanks to M.Brindos and Model Maniac for the heads up and the inspiration in obtaining this kit for my next build.

Good looking build. Very nice looking and I love the low key weathering. Excellent.

Nicely done! Painting and canopy masking are superb. An excellent addition to your display case you should be proud of.

Thanks friends for comment.



  The decals came with the kit. However I did not use them on the wings. I airbrushed the meat balls using template I bought from artist shop.
