First Look

Lifelike Decals from Japan turns out some colorful and nicely printed subjects. This time they've done part one of a nice series of markings for Hasegawa's magnificent 1/32 scale Ki-61 Hien (Tony) kit.

This decal set provides markings for five aircraft:

  • Ki-61 Type 1 Hei, #3295, 244th Sentai, Chofu AB, 1945, as flown by Capt Teruhiko Kobayashi
  • Ki-61 Type 1 Tei, #4424, 244th Sentai, Chofu AB, 1945, as flown by Capt Teruhiko Kobayashi
  • Ki-61 Type 1 Tei, #4424, 159th Shinbu-tai, Chofu AB, 1945, as flown by 2nd Lt Shunzo Takashima
  • Ki-61 Type 1 Tei, #57, Shintsn Seiku-tai, Chofu AB, 1945, as flown by 2nd Lt Torhu Shinomiya
  • Ki-61 Type 1 Hei, 244th Sentai, Chofu AB, 1945, as flown by Corporal Seiichi Suzuki

The color profiles inside provide left profiles of their subjects and detailed notes regarding the history and markings of each subject.

As you can see in the decal image, this set comes complete with a full set of national markings and distinctive unit markings. If you're looking for a colorful alternative that isn't from the mainstream Superscale/Eagle Strike/Aeromaster line-up, here is a nice way to be different!

You can purchase these decals directly from Lifelike Decals. My sincere thanks to Lifelike Decals for this review sample!
