Japanese Aircraft Online Model Contest 007 - EDUARD BADESCU

My name is Eduard and here's my entry, a Ki-43 Haybusa in Chinese markings.
The kit is the old 1/72 Fujimi, with some extra scratch-built details, a full rivet job and a vacu-formed canopy. Decals were sourced from Bestfong.
After I have finished and photographed the model, I have realized that the 43 I version had no landing light in the wing, so I had to remove it...somehow
Thank you!

A very good representation of the original. I like the fact that you removed the landing light even after finishing the model. 4.7
