Eduard Set # 48-264
Hasegawa 1/48 Ki-27 'Nate'
This Eduard set is for the very nice Hasegawa Ki-27 'Nate'. Interestingly enough, this Nate is not originally a Hasegawa offering, being produced by Mania way back in the 1970s. The mold holds up well, even by today's standards.
However, it is an older kit and so will benefit from Eduard's efforts. The single fret (shown slightly larger than life), contains a large number of parts for the cockpit. Basically it replaces all but the floor and the instrument panel, though you do get a new brass panel to place over the kit part. For the exterior, new flaps and liners are offered as well as a replacement for the engine pushrods and a new step plate for the left wingroot. All in all a very good set that is sure to make the already nice Hasegawa Nate even better!
