Arma Hobby 1/72 Nakajima Ki-84 Hayate (70053)

This time we are going to check Arma Hobby 1/72 Nakajima Ki-84 Hayate (70053). As you can guess, this kit continues line of Japanese fighter aircraft from the famous manufacturer. It is still molded in popular scale and offers a chance to copy Special Attack Units with help of new decals. Packaging is typical for this brand, everything comes in one bag. Let's open it and take a closer look together.
By the way, here you can read review with the previous Hayate version.

Watch this video where I show all parts even closer.

We are going to start with the first grey plastic sprue. Here you will find tailwings and bombs. Both look fine out of the box.

Second frame comes with all other parts as you can see here. Fuselage halves are molded together with tail fin and rudder. Top wing halves are joined with main wheel wells.

There are also some features inside parts, what is really nice to have in 1/72 scale.

Clear parts come in the separate plastic bag. Molding quality looks great and you can open the cockpit on your model.

Masks are pre-cut and ready to be used on clear parts and landing gear wheels.

Decals sheet comes from Techmod, so printing quality looks fine. Note that there are also some decals for the cockpit. On the photo below you can see three markings.

Assembly manual is typical for this brand. I show all pages in the video-review.

New kit should be already available for purchase. In my opinion it is a nice choice if you would like to copy unusual marking in your build. Moreover, plastic still looks great and should be fun to work with. The only thing required from you is careful assembly and nice paintwork. You can also consider some of the aftermarket available now for this kit. :)
