Oxford AC039 Imperial Japanese Army Nakajima Ki-43-II Hayabusa "Oscar" Fighter - Sgt. Kushiro Otake, 25th Sentai, Nanking, China, 1943 (1:72 Scale) "We have resolved to endure the unendurable and suffer what is insufferable."
- Japanese Emperor Hirohito speaking to the Japanese people after the atomic bombings, August 1945

The Nakajima Ki-43 Hayabusa (Peregrine Falcon) was numerically the most important fighter used by the Japanese Army Air Force during the Pacific War. It remained in production from the beginning of the Pacific War until its end in August 1945. In many ways, it was a transitional type, bridging the gap between the lightly-loaded monoplane fighters of the late 1930s with their fixed undercarriages and open cockpits, and the more highly-powered heavy fighters of the early 1940s with their retractable undercarriages and enclosed cockpits.

Its appearance was a complete surprise to the Allies, and the fighter proved to be superior in performance to most of its opponents during the first year of the Pacific War. Most of the Japanese Army's aces established the larger part of their scores while flying this airplane. The Ki-43 is often confused with its contemporary, the famed Mitsubishi A6M Reisen (Zero Fighter) of the Japanese Navy, and was often misidentified as a "Zero" early in the war.

Pictured here is a 1:72 scale replica of a Japanese Nakajima Ki-43-II Hayabusa "Oscar" Fighter that was piloted by Sgt. Kushiro Otake, who was attached to the 25th Sentai, then deployed to Nanking, China, during 1943. Now in stock!

Reviewer: Sakai from Houston, TX United States  
This could possibly be the best diecast Oscar in 1:72 I have. Nicely rendered and meticulously painted.
