Arii Mitsubishi KI-15 Kamikaze
Posted by duckman on Sunday, January 29, 2017 1:06 PM

Hello everyone and happy Sunday!

This is my first time posting in the civil aircraft section so here we go!

I picked up this kit at the local shop for about $4.00 CAD I figured I had nothing to lose for the price the boxed was marked "OBSP" as with most of the kits the store sells.

I decided to keep the model clean with no weathering just brand new out of the paint booth!

coulors used were ModelMaster Aluminum and Humbrol WWI blue 109 kits is complete OOB including the decals- to my surprise they preformed perfectly with a little Micro-sol!

Looks great and for $4 Canadian you can't beat that. Was this a civilian plane pressed into kamikaze service?

Very nice build, was it the ARII kit?

Kamikazi means Divine Wind in Japanese and was the name of the particular airplane used for  a record flight to Europe.  It was used for record flights and by newspapers before the war.  The Japanese called the Ki-15 Karigane, wild goose.  We called it Babs.  In the war it was a recon airplane.

Beautiful job there! 

Somehow seems to me older civilian aircraft had more character than modern ones.

Thank you Toshi, Gamera, Crown r n7 and roony! 

I really enjoyed this simple build, besides masking the canopy! I almost lost interest when I was nearing the end looking at the decal sheet with its washed out yellow glare staring at me!
