Here is my rendition of the Hasegawa kit in 48th. I have used the superlative SBS interior, riveted the model and made my own masks as the Hasegawa decals are just very poor. The Kawanishi green is from the Mr Color range, AK metal for the underside with Dead design masks for the moveable surfaces. Master canon barrels are a must too. This is a first serie « Shiden-kai » with the large rudder, piloted by WO Hiroshi Oh-hara with the 343rd Ku at Omura in April 45. The white band denotes a buntai-cho. A very pleasant project.
