Hasegawa/Alleycat 1/32 Kawasaki Ki-100 Goshikisen

By Ulrich Schütt

The Hasegawa Ki-61 kit with the Alleycat Ki-100 resin fuselage. A first glance at the resin gave me the impression that I was in for an easy build. Nice panel lines, no bubbles, nice detail. The stuff looks the part… And that’s were it ends…

The fuselage was warped. Tried to bend it using warm water but to no avail. One fuselage half was a couple of millimeters short. Had a hard time trying to get the fuselage and cowling ring in the correct position to get a flush fit.
