BEAUTIFUL Type Ko Fighter (Nieuport 29C1) in 1/32
by Matsudo Meisaikai member Komuro-san.
All scratch built.

Komuro-san also built a Type Ko-3 fighter (Nieuport 24C) and an Otsu-1 Recce (Salmson 2A2) in 1/144. Also scratch built.   

My personal favorite, Nakajima J5N1 "Tenrai", Racoon Models 1/48, by Ikeda-san

The booth of All-Japan Solid Model Group (a get-together of solid model groups from around Japan) had some really spectacular models.

 BEST model of the show was the Mitsubishi Ki-46 "Dinah" by Ichioka-san.
In 1/32 ALL scratch built. Ichikoa-san had been working on the model for more than ten years!!!! The canopy is removable to show the super detailed cockpit. Engine and wheel wells are also super detailed.
