This Limited Edition kit from Hasegawa allows the modeler to produce an interesting diorama related to the Akeno Flying School as it existed in December of 1943.  The Akeno Flying School was located on the island of Honshu, south of Nagoya and east of Osaka.  It was called the Supreme Flight Training School for the Imperial Japanese Army.  Lots of photos of aircraft that were used during training at Akeno include many fighters from the Ki-27 to the Ki-100.  By December, 1943, Japan was seriously in need of new pilots. A series of conflicts with opponents across the area of operations had ground down the Japanese Army Air Service and replacements were desperately needed from schools like Akeno. This limited edition kit combo features two aircraft, a Nakajima Ki-43 Hayabusa and a Ki-44 Shoki, plus a TX40 Fuel Truck. Also included are several figures and a small four wheeled push cart.
