Hi guys.

Kawasaki ki-61-1 Hien, 39th training Sqadron. Pilot Sgt Maj. Iwao Tabata, Yokushiba airfield March 1945.

Model was painted with laquers, oils and acrylics. Weathering was a combination of chalk pastels, oil pastels, artist oil pencils including AK weathering pencils, artist pencils, artist oil paints and airbrush. No wash was applied, except for the cockpit. Aerial is stretched spru.

It took me a long time to get here, but I made it.

Your patience payed off Dale, your Tony is looking marvelous. The weathering and finish blends perfectly and therefore very realistic. I love the panel articulation with, I guess pastels. Great Job

Cheers Rob
