Wrapped with Hasegawa's very high standard and quality for scale model products, this box kit is a must have for every modelers interested with the Japanese Aviation.
The Nakajima Ki-84 Hayate ("Gale") was a single-seat fighter used by the Imperial Japanese Army Air Service in World War II. The Allied reporting name was "Frank"; the Japanese Army designation was Army Type 4 Fighter . Featuring excellent performance and high maneuverability, the Ki-84 was considered to be the best Japanese fighter to see large scale operations during World War II. It was able to match any Allied fighter, and was able intercept the high-flying B-29 Superfortresses.
Though hampered by poor production quality in later models, a high-maintenance Nakajima Homare engine, landing gear prone to buckle, inconsistent fuel quality, and a lack of experienced pilots above all else, Hayates proved to be fearsome opponents; a total of 3,514 were built. The Ki-84 was the fastest fighter in the Imperial Japanese military if good fuel was used and the aircraft was in good shape.
