Havate Frank

A plane which since July 1932 the Nakajima Aircraft Mfg. Company had designed and manufactured for trial under the name of KI-84 was officially adopted in April 1944 by the Army as the Fighter Type 4 "Hayate" and the mass production was started. The number of the Hayate produced by the end of World War II totaled about 3,500 which ranks next to that of the Zero and the Hayabusa but is the largest in the Japanese aircraft history in view of the number produced in about a year. The performance of the Hayate was equal to, or higher than that of the Allies' fighters of those days. This was the first fighter worthy of the name having excellent speed (climbing ability), firepower and maneuverability that became available to the Army. Those days when Japan feared she might lose the command of the air even over Japan proper, the Hayate called "the Decisive fighter to turn the fate of the Greater East Asia" was accepted by fighter units with hopes as a new fighter to beat enemy combat planes. It made its first campaign over Central China as a member of the 22nd Air Flotilla.

"they know how to tell you how."
jctoymaker
This is a beginners kit ; outside of the lack of interest for a young American boy in a Japanese fighter today, I would recommend for that purpose. It is also a very good fitting kit, easy to assemble. It is also a very simple kit, where it might be more detailed. but then it wouldn't be 11.00 or so. Tamiya's pricing scale is the widest I have ever seen; from great values like this, to incredibly expensive Storchs Hard to understand, if you don't have the money for these kits. However there is something striking about this Tamiya kit; the instructions. I have never, ever, seen any better anywhere, anyhow, any way, especially given the kits simplicity. They did not treat the builder as at any level; they just clearly and in painstaking detail explained and illustrated each step. I dearly wish some of the more complex difficult, and detailed kits I have built in the last year were half as good. You are never too old, or experienced, to learn a better way. I will soon enough. go for a more expensive kit on my wish list, to see if they are good in that situation.

"Nice Beginner Kit"
Miguel G.T (Colombia)
This beautiful plane was the best japanese fighter of ww2. The kit has very few parts and is very easy for assembly. The detail is a bit lacking but acceptable for its cheap price. The amount of imperfection in the parts of the kit is minimal, so sanding is almost not required. The decals are very good in quality. Overall this is a must for any beginner that wishes to learn and experiment with a cheap plane kit.

 
"Ki-84 Frank..."
Jeff
This is a simple kit which can be built over a couple of days if one so desires. There are not a lot of parts and construction is fairly straight forward. Fit of the parts is excellent and only a small amount of putty on my kit was required with most of this being in the nose area and directly behind the cockpit along the top. The cockpit is very simple and looks good when this aircraft is all buttoned up. It is a small cockpit and if one includes the pilot which I did very little is to be seen so the sparsity of detail is not important. The decal sheet is superb with plenty of options, 4 different aircraft markings being supplied. If I were to criticize the decals, they may be a bit thick but with careful application they look good. The instruction sheet is a direct translation from Japanese so it may read a bit different but it is very understandable. Overall this kit looks great for the money that one spends. It is a nice model to add to your collection and one that will not break the bank to add to your display shelf. Cheers, Jeff

 
"Good kit"
Matthew M.
This plane assembled perfectly as all Tamiya planes they are not a builders nightmare but the decals they are a bit fragile and need to be carefully slid on or else they can rip easily that's the only downfall of that brand you would think they would improve alittle better on the decals but anyways it's a nice addition to the Pacific war plane collection if your into that or any in general WWII aircraft collection like my self . It's a fun model to build but the decals I think should only get a 2 star rating but other than that not a bad model kit .

Markings

  • Single sheet of decals contains aircraft code letters, serial
  • numbers, national insignia, stencils, and cockpit instruments for
