    Ok, time for me to get my PTO build up and running, been chipping away at this one in between doing the Ta152 and Me262....

    Now,...as I'm a judge....I am participating rather than competing...

    The kit is the 1/32 Hasegawa Ki-84 Hayate, the aircraft I will be depicting was part of the 57th Shimbu-Tai (Special Attack Corps) probably the most striking markings seen on a special attack aircraft...stay tuned!

    Ok even though Paul has beaten me to it....

    My subject aircraft Nakajima Ki-84 “White 21” flown by Corporal (Isao?) Takano of the 57th Shimbu-tai, The photo is the only known shot which shows a full view of “White 21” and it’s red and white arrow marking, making this a rather striking and colourful bird, the marking on the rear fuselage reads “Certain Sinking”.

    The photo was taken at 1 pm May 17, 1945, a total of 12 FRANKS of the 57th Shimbu-tai take off heading for Bofu airbase Yamaguchi Prefecture from Shimodate airbase Ibaragi Prefecture, after completing all special attack training.

    On May 25th the aircraft of the 57th Shimbui-tai attacked American vessels surrounding Okinawa and were killed in action.
