Heads Up! - Mitsubishi Ki-30 "Ann" by AZ Model

 AZ Model have released two new Mitsubishi Ki-30 "Ann" kits, one titled "Ki-30 Ann in Asian Sky (sic)"...

and another "Ki-30 Ann At War"

I haven't received any review samples from the company so I can't comment at this time about the quality, accuracy etc of the kits. I would say the blue underside of the 10th Sentai sample is highly suspicious. There was also no "Toyooka Shikan Gakko". The correct designation is "Rikugun Koku Shikan Gakko" which can be translated as "Army Air Academy" or "Army Aviation Officers School". It was established on December 10, 1938, in Toyooka, present-day Iruma), Saitama Prefecture.
But overall, interesting and very welcomed releases on a VERY overlooked subject with interesting paint jobs and tail markings.

Hi George
Ki-30 Ann from AZ-model is the editor of a previously released model and the origin of the moldings is in PAVLA MODEL. It is a classic short run with everything.
Best regards
