Base Kit: Hasegawa Ki-27 Nate
This sheet is the third of three limited edition sheets produced by Lifelike Decals for the Hasegawa 1/72 Ki-27 Fighter (codenamed “Nate” by the Allies). The sheet provides markings for seven different aircraft from the Japanese Army. The set includes color side views of all seven aircraft illustrating left side markings and overhead views showing the wing markings of the various aircraft.
Six of the aircraft are overall light grey and one is dark green over light grey. Each aircraft has very distinctive markings that will provide you with an interesting choice of which to use. As with the first two sheets, the aircraft depicted are from a wide variety of units and several are directly associated with specific pilots as noted in the instructions. Inside the instructions, Lifelike provides a summary description of each aircraft, including any particular pilot that the aircraft was associated with. The descriptions also include references to published photographs of the aircraft and as with the first two sheets, there is a listing of the materials referenced at the end of the descriptions.
