Nakajima Ki-27

The Nakajima Ki-27 (九七式戦闘機 Kyūnana-shiki sentōki, or Type 97 Fighter?) was the main fighter aircraft used by the Imperial Japanese Army Air Force up until 1940. Its Allied nickname was “Nate”, although it was called “Abdul” in the “China Burma India” (CBI) theater by many post war sources;[1] Allied Intelligence had reserved that name for the nonexistent Mitsubishi Navy Type 97 fighter, expected to be the successor to the Type 96 carrier-borne A5M with retractable landing gear and an enclosed cockpit.

    It’s easy to forget the Nate as it’s use in China and the pacific is largely overshadowed by the more modern Oscar and Zero! (many times all Japanese fighters where just identified as zeros.) But if you want to explore the years of Japanese and Chinese warfare including the venerable AVG, or the Dolittle raid. The Nate is a great model to have in your collection. The model itself is cleanly cast with few flaws and only the tinyest of runners to break off. (by break I mean use tweezers or a hemostat to do it.) if your really nitpiky you can take a file to them and improve the castings slightly. The detail is good and the size is perfect for the intended scale!
