Marusan - Kawasaki Ki-61 "Tony" - Scale: 1/50

Fujimi - "Hopping series: Zero-sen Taicho" - Scale: ?
A "kit" from the '60s by Fujimi. The pilot figure was positioned over a rubber base with a spring; hence the "hopping series" name.

Really love this vintage box art. That's an Airfix-worthy action scene on the Hayate box. Still trying to figure out the spring-mounted pilot figure though. It`s the type of bizarre and fascinating thing that could only have come from 1960s Japan. Pretty cool.

Thanks guys. I think the spring-mounted pilot was to be some short of dashboard or desk accessory.
