Special Hobby Ki-54 On The Way!
Continuing the theme of Army twins into this New Year with a hat tip to Danilo for kindly alerting me to this announced future release by Special Hobby of a 1/72 kit of the Tachikawa Ki-54 Hei 'Hickory', Army Type 1 Transport. Long overdue as a mainstream kit but mixed feelings about likely ease of build and availability. Will this announcement deter Hasegawa, Tamiya, Fine Molds et al and become a sad repeat of the Ki-21 story?
This has an old series number SH72270 but according to Hannants is a brand new kit.
