TOMY KI 84


Recommended Posts

While I'm waiting on a new pit for the 190, I dug this out. Been thinking about it for some time. I love this kit because of the skin detail on it. The best I've ever seen and its 50+ years old ! It comes with a motor for the prop which means a battery box under the pit. The pit itself sucks big time. Way too shallow  and no detail. I plan on using an Aires pit that I have. So some cutting will be required.  Also need to source wheels for it. Maybe an engine too, but that's down the road. I plan on starting after the 190 is done. I did a review of this kit on TOS years ago. So, a couple of pics. Cheers....harv

You'll need more panel liner, than a thirsty sailor could drink for al these surface details. This will look great, with a decently weathered Japanese green paintjob over bare metal, bring it on.

Initial fit is good. Wing root, not too bad considering the whole wing assembly is supposed to be removable for batteries. There is a bit of hard flash to be cleaned up and some gaps on underside. Also a hole to plug where the switch was supposed to go. That's all for now. Cheers.....harv

After receiving this great gift from Bill, he sent me his Doyusha ( Tony) Frank. Wierd seeing it in grey ! After removing all his ribbing he scratched in, a quick test fit and I'm encouraged by it so far. Lots more work to get it right.......harv

Hi Kevin. The pit is made by Aires. It's for the Hasegawa kit. I have 2. Bill just sent me his. Mine is made by Tomy and Bill's is a Doyusha. They are the same kit. Different color of plastic. Iet me know what kit you have. If you have trouble finding the resin pit, let me know. I have an extra....harv
