This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.
The Kawasaki Ki-61-I Tei's tough, modified wings housed dual .50 inch (12.7 mm) Ho-103 cannons, while the fuselage boasted 0.8 inch (20 mm) Ho-5 cannons. Pilots like the 56th Sentai's Major Haruyoshi Furukawa counted on the Ki-61-I Tei's impressive firepower to counter larger Allied bombers, including the B-29 Superfortress. This highly agile fighter helped Furukawa score an estimated five career kills while flying for the Japanese Army Air Force.
Decal Option: J.A.A.F. 56th FR, Major Haruyoshi Furukawa, Code: 751, Itami AB, 1945
