Tony's Oscars

With the kind permission of Tony O'Toole it is a pleasure to share these images of two of his Ki-43 'Oscar' models in 1/48th scale. The 54th Sentai Ki-43-I is from the Nichimo (?) kit and the 64th Sentai Ki-43-III Ko from the Fine Molds kit, both representing Burma campaign opponents for Tony's collection of SEAC Spitfire and Hurricane types. Believe it or not both models are also completely brush painted by hand.

With grateful thanks to Tony for permission to show these superb models here.
