This is a flawed 90% reproduction of the Nakajima Ki-43-II. For one, the exhaust is wrong. The Ki-43 Hayabusa (Oscar) had short, single exhaust stacks at the 3 and 9 o'clock position at the cowling trailing edge. The multiple short pipes as found on this example are what what used on the much superior Ki.84 "Frank"; a fighter that only appeared during the last years of the war. Not to take away from this excellent reproduction but sometimes little details stand out.

エンジンは残ってないので仕方が無いでしょうけど 風防に残念感が・・・

I'm a little bit confused because the title says that its a ki43 IIIb. I thought the 3b was only built as a prototype with 2 20mm cannons so i wonder if this really is a 3b

The armament was quickly upgraded to two 12.7mm (about .50) machineguns. This is an early war plane, it was thought that such armament was adequate to shoot down enemy planes, and it partially was for early unarmored planes, but quickly became inadequate. Gotta remind you that the americans fought pretty much the whole war with 4-6 .50 cal machineguns.

Nope, the Oscar was completely Japanese-designed. The only thing it has in common with the Fw-190 is that both are low-winged radial-engined fighters.

eary ki-43 has two7.7mm guns. soon later one7.7mm gun &12.7mm gun and later two 12.7mm guns

The plane is very similar to german fw-190 , the japoniees could recive some blue print from germans

I stood next to this aircraft at Tillamook air museum in 2008, very impressed with authentic colors, nice restoration. I was bug eyed when I paid my ticket to enter the hanger and saw it, I grew up modeling WW 2 Japanese aircraft, so could appreciate being near it. Was surprised that the owners made it flyable due to rarity of the machine.

This aircraft was built from the ground up using parts from several wrecked Ki-43's as engineering templates. It has a Pratt & Whitney engine and I believe it is one of two flyable examples that exist.
