This absolutely beautiful model of a Ki-15 in the markings of the 18th Dokuritsu Hiko Chutai (Independent Flying Squadron) and the tri-colour camouflage of the China theatre was built by Polish modeller Zbyszek Malicki and it is a delight to feature it here at Aviation of Japan.
The model is to 1/72nd scale and was built from the LS kit, subsequently issued by Arii, and still available here. My thanks to Mr Maliki for kindly sharing it with us. It is an appropriate precursor to the penultimate exploration of Army interior colours and the investigation of Army browns which will both feature shortly.
