Nakajima Ki44-II Otsu SHOKI (Tojo) w/40mm Cannons (Hasegawa 1:32 #08200)

Looking for a change of pace after the E-2C in 1/72, I decided I wanted to have a crack at a natural metal finish. Knowing how much love and attention Hasegawa puts in any Japanese subject, I figured it would be perfectly safe to build the Ki44 Tojo pretty much out of the box.

Well, as it turned out, this was really a bunch of "firsts" for me. First NMF using Alclads, first time I have painted ALL the markings on (no decals), first time I have built a base with grass (very happy with how that turned out BTW).

The build of this model is can be found On the Bench.
