    I've just bought an small book:

    Bombers 1930-45 Patrol and Transport Aircraft by Kenneth Munson.

    when I looked the pictures I see this very nice aircraft. I've found more pictures in internet and the for me the plane is beatiful.

    I've found one old model from Modelarz, but I want one for the Ki-46-III version, with more glass in the nose.

    Anyone knows about a paper model for this version?

    Some pictures:

    As far as I know there is none in 1/33 scale. Trotskiy could have it but I can't check because his page seems to have dissapeared...
    You cna always try to modify the one from Maly Modelarz...

    Hey Mike,

    Have you tried the new addy? Worked for me

    @Alcides, Trotskiy does have the Ki-46 III, 2nd group of plane, 2nd row, 3rd plane. However, it
    is not available now. It will take awhile to come around in the rotation.

    The Maly Ki-46 turns up occaisonally on eBay. But it's not the version you wanted - it's the Ki-46 IIIKai - the fighter version which had the same nose
    as the II version so that a pair of 20mm cannon could be fitted.

    Thanks for the answers !!!

    A shame we don't have a model for this plane. :(

    Maybe I've to take the design route? :???:

    And Yes, I've seen the trotskiy model, but I was thinking in a more detailed model.

    I exchanged few emails with the designer.
    If we understood each other correctly (he used altavista to translate English-Japanese-English), all his designs are scratchbuilds.
    I'm tried to convince him to offer them to the public and maybe he will consider it......
    I would definietely buy all his Japanese planes.....

    Bob my hat goes off to you, that is a great looking model and very kind of you to be designing a model that some members wanted. This forum is so kind hearted it makes me wish I knew how to design models so that I can help out others as well.

    Ki-46 "Dinah" color scheme for regular nose version

    I was also working on coloring and reworking the original version (non-smooth nose version) of this plane in the dark green/yellow and brown camoflage pattern with the "tiger" on the tail....there was a plastic model put out in this version by( LM? maybe...)I have finished the tail so far....I thought that this really makes a striking you see...I have far too many "irons in the fire" and should finish all this stuff sometime around 2050!!!:razz:
