    This is a nakajima Ki-84 modified in the filed as a two seat trainer. They were used for pilot transition to the newer fighter planes. It is thought there were no controls in the rear seat , probably just a voice tube. Kit is from one of the old Revell three kits in one to 1/72 scale. This is one of three I'm just finishing up.

    Looks realistic enough to be plausable... might there be some real-life info upon these exceedingly rare conversions?

    Here is one of only a couple of bad photos of this bird, and the profile that I started with. If you go to J-aircraft forum under Army you will find some info.Thanks to Jim Landsdale for the photo and Jim Long for thier help with this project.

    Thanks Otftch :) the screen framework for the 2nd pit seems very Ki-43/44 like, certainly as they're Nakajima's/Fuji's...
