Base Kit
Company: CMK - Website:


The Hasegawa 1/72 Ki-61 dates back to the early 1970s and is still a nice kit, but basic. CMK has come out with some detail sets to spice up these old kits.

What You Get

4 crisply molded resin parts along with a 9 X 3.5 folded sheet of instructions. These parts are very fragile so please be careful when handling them.


The first thing you need to do is remove the flaps from kit part B10 and thin the undersides of the corresponding areas of parts B11 & 12. This 2nd part is where I totally messed this up due to my not paying attention. I removed the areas totally and this made it almost impossible to build. I managed to get these on and make them look halfway decent, but it could have and should have been better. With the exception of my mistake, these went on pretty easy and look very nice.


A very nice set but I would recommend only modelers who have experience with resin sets tackle this.

I would like to thank Special Hobby and CMK for providing this and the Review Corps for letting me build it.
