This is an injection-plastic aircraft model kit.

The Ki-27 (or Type 97 Fighter Aircraft) was the IJAAF's main fighter in the pre-war period, and continued to be widely used into the early-war period. This model is the "a" variant, with original small canopy and oil cooler. Panel lines are fine and recessed. A fret of photoetched parts is included to supply a very detailed cockpit, with photoetched instrument panel, seat, belts and levers. A vacuform canopy is provided. Decals are for 4 aircraft: Capt. Kiyoshi Kimura's aircraft #55 of the 10th Dokuritsu Chuutai in China 1939-40; Master Sargeant Katsutaro Takahashi's aircraft "ta" of 2nd Chuutai 59th Sentai in Manchuria 1939; aircraft #30 of the 84th Dokuritsu Chuutai in China 1940-41 and aircraft #58 of the 10th Dokuritsu Chuutai in China 1939-40. While RS Models are "short-run" kits, it is honestly hard to believe that looking at the parts. RS Models kits are easily on par with the major makers, and the added detail provided by the photoetched pieces will make them really stand out, even to the "flashlight brigade".
