First Look

Empire City Decals has returned with four distictive Japanese Army kamikaze aircraft. Unlike some of their early releases however, these decals are not Alps-printed, they are waterslide decals printed by AviPrint of the Czech Republic.

The four aircraft featured in this set include:

  • Ki-84 Hayate, 195 Shinbu-Tai, Kita Isa, Spring 1945
  • Ki-61 Tei, 56 Shinbu-Tai, Chiran AB, April 1945
  • Ki-9, 21 Hikoshidan Shireibu Hikodan, Kuamoto, Kyushu, Fall 1945
  • Ki-46-II,

The decals are printed sharp, clear, and in perfect register. Plus it appears that there are sufficient markings on the sheet to do all four aircraft with this one set. Nice!

These will provide some interesting subjects for the 1/72 WWII Japanese aviation modeler. Definitely recomended!

My sincere thanks to Empire City Decals for this review sample!
