Lifelike Decals from Japan turns out some colorful and nicely printed subjects. In this set, we have eight aircraft from the 244th Sentai. These are a combination of Kawasaki Ki-61 (Tony) and Ki-27 (Nate) aircraft.
This decal set provides markings for eight aircraft:
- Ki-27 Type 97 Fighter Otsu, 2nd Chutai
- Ki-61-I-Tei Hein, '24', Capt. Kobayashi
- Ki-61-I-I-Tei Hein, '62', Capt. Kobayashi

The instructions recommend the Hasegawa kit for the Ki-27 while the Tamiya or Hasegawa Ki-61s are recommended for their respective versions.
As you can see in the decal image, this set comes complete with a full set of national markings, distinctive unit markings, and a wealth of maintenance stencils. If you're looking for a colorful subjects beyond what you find in the kit boxes, here is a nice way to be different!
