Ki-84 Frank - part 1

The Nakajima Ki-84 'Hayate' (Gale) entered service with the Japanese Army in 1944 and shows (to my eyes at least) a clear visual similarity to the earlier Ki-43 and Ki-44.
These are yet more F-Toys pre-painted kits and were part of the same set as the Nate and Sonia and have been hanging around awaiting the combined assaults of knife and glue.
The first (of three) kits assembled.
The parts awaiting assembly.
The second Frank takes to the air.
As with earlier F-Toys builds, these went together easily.  In view of the handling these models will get, my practice is to completely disassemble the kit before gluing it all together.  More photos will follow when I have chosen and applied the markings.

Quite nicely detailed Tim, clearly you have a fair collection of Japanese aircraft

These look very nice, just like all your F-Toys aircraft.

I expect a group line up of your Japanese air group once you have stopped the individual post.

Quite a collection - I really should get some gaming use from them!

Plenty still to build, but I like the idea of a flypast. Leave it with me.
