Emperor of the sky
In side profile, the Ki-43 looked exactly like the Japanese Zero. Both planes were light, fast and lethal, but it was the Ki-43 which shot down the most Allied aircraft. The plane's high speed and maneuverability made it a favorite of several Japanese Army Air Force aces, but its lack of armor made it vulnerable to counter fire. The Ki-43-III was an experimental design which used a larger engine and drop tanks to extend the fighter's range. Limited edition kit features resin engine parts and two IJAAF decals from 1945.
