Mitsubishi Ki-51 "Sonia" by Miro Herold

I just finished my Mitsubishi Ki-51 "Sonia" from the 10th Dokuritsu Hikodan Shireibu, Borneo, Greater Sunda Islands, March 1945. It is the old Mania kit in 1/72. For details I used several resin parts from Kora Models and Rising Decals. The canopy is from Falcon.
My inspiration was of course your excellent book from Arawasi!
Many regards from Germany!

Brilliant model Miro! Very happy to see a different Sonia than the so-often-built blue one. Glad our Eagle Eye #1, http://www.arawasi.jp/salebook.hp/aramag/eye1.html, was useful. Can't wait to see your next Japanese a/c model.

I love how you modeled it without the wheel covers. Great build!
