$10.00 or so plus shipping


Hasegawa 1/72 kit


Scott Van Aken

This nice set is for the Hasegawa 1/72 Ki-67 Hiryu bomber. It is because of kits like this one that these are so very useful. As you can see, most of the panes are quite small and there are a LOT of them.

The set comes with a very large instruction/placement guide, and if you have this kit or look at the above image, you can see why that is the case.  The sheet is broken down in a large number of specific sections to ensure that you get these in the right place. As with other sets from Eduard, you get wheel masks to help you paint the wheels. The very front and rear pieces are only provided as outlines and you need to fill in the space with liquid mask.

If you have this particular kit, you'll be doing yourself a real favor by looking for this one. I built my last one without the benefit of a masking set and it was tedious to the extreme. If you wonder why you should get this set, the image below should help.
