1/72 Fine Molds Kawasaki Ki-61 Hien

Gallery Article by Fuad Pashayev on Mar 19 2013



I have not any problems with assembly.  I used the set of etched parts from Eduard intended for a similar model from “Dragon”.  The set came in like a glove, very little has been reduced in the cabin section and cut a pair of projections.

Plastic was hard, like Hasegawa’s plastic.  I'd add the antenna cable from nylon thread, wing lights from colored transparent plastic and hydraulic brake lines were supplied to the chassis from copper wire.   I dilled the barrels of the machine guns on the engine cowling. 

My Hein was painted with Alclad and Tamiya. Lacquers – Pledge Futura and Tikurilla.
