Lifelike Decals

Lifelike Decals 1/72 Ki-84 Part 2 Decal First Look

By Michael Benolkin

Date of Review July 2013 Manufacturer Lifelike Decals
Subject Ki-84 Part 2 Scale 1/72
Set Number 72027 Skill Level Basic

First Look

Lifelike Decals from Japan turns out some colorful and nicely printed subjects. In this set, we have five distinctive Ki-84 fighters but unfortunately, the profile sheet in this sample is in Japanese. According to the website, the production decals sent over to North America will be in English and fortunately there is a key of which aircraft are presented online.

Ki-84 Ki-84

This decal set provides markings for five aircraft:

  • Ki-84, Army Transport Unit as flown by Lt Shuho Yamana
  • Ki-84, 57th Shinbu-tai, as flown by Corporal Hajime Shimizu
  • Ki-84, 85th Sentai, as flown by LtCol Yukiyoshi Wakamatsu
  • Ki-84, 10th Flight Training Hikotai
  • Ki-84, 50th Sentai, as flown by WO Yojiro Obusa

As you can see in the decal images and profiles, this set provides some distinctive color schemes. If you want to dress up the Hasegawa kit, this is the set you've been waiting for.

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