About the Ki-61:

The Kawasaki Ki-61 Hien (Swallow) was a distinct departure from existing Japanese WWII fighter aircraft, with its liquid-cooled in-line engine (rather than the more common air-cooled radials). In fact, when the Allies first encountered the Ki-61 during combat in New Guinea in the spring of 1943, they thought it was a German or Italian design! This was why it received the nickname Tony, short for Antonio. Its speed and power initially caused concern for Allied pilots, but by the end of WWII it was truly outclassed, even though some continued to soldier on with the IJA.

Notes & Tips:

* Includes a scale model which requires assembly, this is not a toy.
* Ages 14 and over.
* Choking hazard: Contains small parts.
* Actual model may vary from images.
* Does not include tools, cement or paints.
* Some modelling experience recommended.
