Description

This is an injection-plastic aircraft model kit.

The Ki-27 (or Type 97 Fighter Aircraft) was the IJAAF's main fighter in the pre-war period, and continued to be widely used into the early-war period. This model is the "b" variant, with improved canopy and oil cooler as compared to the original "a" variant. Panel lines are fine and recessed. A fret of photoetched parts is included to supply a very detailed cockpit, with photoetched instrument panel, seat, belts and levers. A vacuform canopy is provided. Decals are for 4 aircraft: Sgt. Susumu Kajinami's aircraft of the 2nd Chuutai 246th Sentai at Kakogawa, Japan in 1943; an aircraft of the 2nd Chuutai 9th Sentai at Liaoyang, Manchuria in 1943; a green and brown camoflaged aircraft flown by Capt. Hyoe Yonaga of 2nd Chuutai 24th Sentai in the Philippines in 1941 and an aircraft of 1st Chuutai 77th Sentai in Thailand in 1942. While RS Models are "short-run" kits, it is honestly hard to believe that looking at the parts. RS Models kits are easily on par with the major makers, and the added detail provided by the photoetched pieces will make them really stand out, even to the "flashlight brigade".
