You've got these Tamiya kits down to a science, and you build almost fast as the Duke! I really like the lighter colored control surfaces. Thanks for sharing!

I like Tamiya (shake and bake) kits.  I am starting to like Airfix betterthan in past

, seeing that more 1/48 scale kits are being released with good detail.  I find it said that oversea manufactures now haver more new releases   Gone are the days of Monogram/Revell being in the lead.  Duke and you always have  kind  comments on my builds thanks

You're welcome, they are worthy of such accolades. And Gil, I think he has surpassed me in speed, certainly in quality!

Great job! But isn't this a Nakajima Ki-43 Oscar?

The Frank and Oscar look similar.  The tails look different.  The Frank tail has a rounded tip and the Oscar tail tip is more pointed.  The spinners also have different shapes.

It also appears as if the Frank's cockpit is a little further back in the fuselage than the Oscar's.

Looking more closely at the kit.  I am wrong.  The plane is not a Frank but an Oscar.  What through me off was the tail tip.  The tip looked rounded, like a Frank's tail.  But the aerial mast is in front of the cockpit like the Oscar and not behind the cockpit like the Franks.

The exhaust also shows this to be an Oscar.

I thought it originally was an Oscar. It seemed to bear the silhouette.

Cheers,
