Lifelike has produced this set of decals for he recent RS Models Ki-100 kit. They can also be used for the FineMolds kit but the producer does not that there might need to be some modification.

In the package, there is one decal sheet which covers the five aircraft. The decals are printed by Cartograf and beautiful, in register and colorful. Also included is the sheet with five full color profiles of the aircraft and their histories and information which is wonderfully researched. Last is a page indicating the paint colors and also the stencil placement and reference sources.

The planes covered are:

  1. 5th Sentai, 1st Chutai, Kiyosu AB flown by Capt. Totaro Ito, Early Summer 1945
  2. 2nd Daitai, 111th Sentai Akeno AB flown by unit commander Maj. Yohei Hinoki, July 1945
  3. 59th Sentai, 3rd Chutai October 1945
  4. Commander's Aircraft of 1st Daitai, 111th Sentai, Akeno AB July 1945
  5. 244th Sentai, Flown by unit commander Maj. Teruhiko Kobayashi, May 1945

These decals are excellent covering the defined subjects, well researched and with great execution. Being printed by Cartograf means they will apply well also.

These decals are highly recommended to all fans of the Ki-100. My thanks to Lifelike and IPMS/USA for the chance to review them.
