Capt Masao Miyamaru Ki 43-II by Jean Barby

Here is my rendition of the "Hayabusa" of this famous JAAF ace, depicting his plane when the 50th Hiko-Sentai moved to Malaya after the hard battle over Burma. In my opinion the Fine Molds model in 48th is way much more accurate than the Hasegawa kit. I did some improvements like riveting the kit and replacing the cowling cooling panels with thin plastic card.
Best regards from France - Jean Barby -
