    Kawasaki Ki-10 ‘Perry’ flown by Lt.Col. Tateo Kato

    Kawasaki Ki-10 (九五式戦闘機, Kyūgo-shiki sentōki?, Army Type 95 Fighter) was the last biplane fighter used by the Imperial Japanese Army, entering service in 1935. Built by Kawasaki Kōkūki Kōgyō KK for the Imperial Japanese Army, it saw combat service in Manchukuo and in north China during the early stages of the Second Sino-Japanese War. Its reporting name given by the Allies was "Perry".
    The Ki-10 was deployed in Manchukuo (Manchuria) and in the initial campaigns of the Second Sino-Japanese War in northern China. It proved an excellent dogfighter against the Chinese air force, including those active at the Battle of Wuhan. However, by the time of the Nomonhan Incident (Battles of Khalkhin Gol) in 1939, against the forces of Soviet Russia, it was largely obsolete.

    The subject aircraft for GB16 is that flown by Lt.Col. Tateo Kato of the 2nd Daitai, 1st Chutai at Changte Air Base in China during March 1938.
    Lt. Col. Kato claimed 9 victories from January 30th to the 10th April 1938 making him the top scoring Japanese Army Air Force pilot during the 1937-41 period. 7 of these claims were definitely made in the Ki-10, the remaining 2 most likely claimed in the new Ki-27 Nate which was delivered for use on the 3rd of April to re-equip the unit.
    Only one other pilot outscored Kato in the Ki-10, Kosuke Kawahara, who was killed in action on the 25th March 1938 having scored 8 victories in the type.

    Photo Source: Internet search, need to find that original location...

    Also the kit parts..

    Thanks Wayne,

    I found this in Emblems of the Rising Sun by Peter Scott. Info under the profile kinda interesting. You could make a whole fleet of aircraft under this guy. :)
