Aircraft Month - it's on!
After spending a jolly morning digging Sara's car out of it's snowdrift - including a fair bit of time digging my way into the car, I took a bit of time this afternoon to do some toy-related 'work'.
For those of you unfamiliar with the F-Toys range (and indeed the similar offerings from Wing Club and Cafe Reo), these are pre-painted kits which require some assembly and application of decals. The photo above shows a completed Ki-51 wearing the markings of the 44th Sentai.
Here is the same Sonia as it came out of the box:
Here are the other two Sonias in flight over my wargames table. They bear the markings of the 67th Sentai and 49th Independent Squadron respectively. The blue colour scheme is unexpected on an Army aircraft!
The set also contained Ki-27 'Nate' fighters (stay tuned), so I feel a trip to 1930s China or Manchuria coming on.
