This decal set provides markings for five aircraft:

  • Ki-84, 1st OFTU, 2nd Lt Kurai
  • Ki-84, 25th Sentai, 2nd, Lt Kanai
  • Ki-84, 104th Sentai
  • Ki-84, 21st Hikoudan, Lt.Col. Yoshioka
  • Ki-84, 102nd Sentai

As you can see in the decal images, this set comes complete with a full set of national markings, distinctive unit markings, and some nice artwork. 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 Decalsfor this review sample!
