Kawasaki Ki-61 IV Hien

<< < (2/7) > >>

Ok Kingkit to the rescue. Order placed before lunch yesterday arrived after lunch today.

Pictures will follow but here is the idea, the Kawasaki Ki-61 IV Hien....

I'm using the RS Models me-309 V1 model as a base with a Hasegawa Ki-61-1 as a donor. The Hase kit is donating the tail and the nose (just where it dips to the prop). I may also use the wings if it doesn't need too much surgery.

You have piqued my interest sir  :thumbsup:

A Hien with a nose wheel? That sounds sexy!

Hopefully mating the 309 to a pair of Hien wings tonight plus hopefully getting the tail to stick.

The 309 is a bit wider in the nose but the original Hiens nose dipped to the pointy spinner. I'm hoping to emulate this by chopping off the last two mm of the Hasegawa donor.

Could all go horribly wrong !

Should say I bought a couple of cheap Revell Hiens from KingKit in case the Hase one went pear shaped. Now I have an RS me-609 but do I have enough time  :wub:

An interesting mix of kits  :thumbsup:
