    This is a Hasegawa Ki-48 I in 1/72 scale, the newest addition to my Japanese Surrender aircraft.

    Very nice Ed. Another unusual build
    LA2019 The surrender makings refer to the AC representing one which was used to transport Japanese officials to the treaty signing. They were painted white with dark green/black (some debate about which they actually were) crosses on them. This was done for recognition purposes to avoid them being attacked by allied fighters
