Under New Management by Derek Cooper

Derek Cooper from England shared his "Under New Management" collection of Kawasaki Ki-61 "Hien" and explained:
Ki-61-I Tei discovered by US forces at Kadena Airfield Okinawa, repainted and used by VMH 322 as a "flying toy". Hasegawa 1/72 scale kit with decals by Max Models (their reprint of Rising Decals' Dying Sun sheet). The decal set is available from Arawasi, check HERE.

Ki-61 Ko/Otsu operated by the Chinese Nationalists after the end of the Pacific War. Dragon 1/72 scale kit (decals included). I have used some artistic licence here because the upper surfaces of the wings may have been plain NMF, but I couldn't resist camouflaging them!

Thanks a lot Derek. Hope to see more soon!
