Ki-45 Nick

by Dave Burke 

This was built from the 1/48 Nichimo Ki-45 Nick (Toryu). I added a bit of cockpit interior from photos in the old Monogram book.


Although it is an “old” mold, it still offered potential. Technologically it was advanced in its day as far as detail was concerned. It is an aircraft with a greenhouse canopy, and the cockpit really benefits from some added work. It’s currently on display in the case at Hobbytown, USA in Mobile, Alabama.
