Hasegawa 1/72 Karigane Duo by Rene de Konig

Continuing the Ki-15 theme, Rene de Konig very kindly sent these images of his original and very imaginative in-flight display of the 2007 Hasegawa Mitsubishi Karigane Type 1 Communication Plane combo featuring J-BAAI 'Kamikaze' and J-BAAL 'Asakaze' (Morning Breeze).

This was one of the early Hasegawa combo kits and featured attractive box art rather than the profiles that were standardised for the re-issues. The base for the model with its period posters/illustrations is especially innovative and creates a really evocative display.

Further details of this build can be found at Rene's own blog here.

Just beautiful, and I really do like the display with the vintage/period posters. I would like to see more of them as well though. Thanks for posting this!
