Product Description

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.

Flawless Tamiya as always
By jmar829 April 3, 2013
I enjoyed the build of the 1/48 scale Havate Frank by Tamiya. All parts fit together flawlessly with very little gap filling or part sanding. A lot of fun and detail for the price!

Decals are great!
By mcgoldrickkelly March 7, 2014
Not only i this another example that Tamiya is possibly the tops in the model airplane business, but the decal sheet is the best ive seen for any plane YET! There are enough decals for three different versions, which includes enough red sun decals for three versions! So, when my zero red suns kinda failed on me, I used red suns from the Frank. Then used them on my Frank and STILL have enough leftoveer for another Japnese fighter if anything goes wrong! As for the model itself, its perfect, no gaps, limited scraping and sanding, if any, and paint schemes are great. Pics to come!

Ki-84 Frank...
By Jeff August 23, 2014
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

Nice Beginner Kit
By Miguel G.T May 13, 2015
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.
