    Kancho...I see the plans to one of my favorite aircraft in the background. Is that a hint as to your next offering?

    It seems Su-25 isn't only my preffered plane :)))
    Sorry, but it won't be the next. these plans are on my design desk since begining of the year. This will be my first 1:32 model, but it won't be selled via my site, because it wil be very detailed and won't be sweetable for download. I'm designing it in background and tis is defining very slow design. May be I'll do 1:48 version, but it won't be soon.
    The next one will be Kawasaky Ki-100

    That's a gorgeous looking model. I'm also looking forward to see an Su-25. Very detailed you say? :D The more the merrier.

    May I suggest doing the plane in two fuselage versions?
    And if you need any documentation, it's yours :D

    Good idea. In fact I usualy do not do variants, but I'll take your offer into consideration.
    About documentation-I have good drawings, but the thing i need is view of engine Kawasaki Ha-140.

    Ha-140 was the liquid-cooled inline engine powering Ki-61 II and Ki-61 II KAI
    Ki-100 had Ha-112 II engine - fourteen-cylinder air-cooled radial.
    I will try to dig something up later.

    Yes, you are quite right - i did mistake. The Ha-140 is inhibitor of Ha-40 - Japan variant of Db-601a. So I really need Ha-112.:) :) :)

    The Ki-100-Ia/b both used the Mitsubishi Ha-112-II 14 cylinder engine. The general series was named "Kinsei" (Golden Star) starting at 730 HP it went quickly to 910 HP and was giving as much as 1560 HP at the end of the War. Designations include Army 99 Model 2, the MK 8-A through MK 8-P, the Ha-112 and finally the HA-33.

    Mitsubishi held a Pratt & Whitney license prior to the outbreak of hostilities and many think it was this connection which influenced the design and it's inherrent reliability.

    Hope this helps your research...,

    Best regards, Gil

    I found this photo in Rene Francillon's Japanese Aircraft of the Pacific War.
    I also have some photos of Ki-100 showing very limited details of the engine.
    Let me know if it will be usefull to you...
