To get the ball rolling, here is my entry for the new “Hayabusa” model competition.
When US Forces captured Hollandia Airfield on New Guinea in April 1944, they found several Hayabusas abandoned by the Japanese in various states of disrepair. There seems to have been something of a competition between the various units stationed there, to bring the aircraft back into flyable condition. My model represents one such aircraft repaired by 41st Troop Carrier Squadron.
