Nakajima Ki-43 "Hayabusa" (Oscar)

A photo from a January 1943 magazine showing how the engine of a "Hayabusa" was changed in front line conditions. 
The vintage article is about the IJAAF fighting over the India border from Burma so, although the tail marking is not visible, this "Hayabusa" very possibly belonged to the 50th Sentai
Perhaps a good solution for the wrongly shaped Hasegawa "Hayabusa" in 1/48.
