Here are some shots of my recently completed 1/32 Ki-84 Frank. I am not happy with the aerial and it's rigging, so I'll eventually go back and fix that. I used the salt technique for paint chipping (my fist attempt at that), it's got most of a Big Ed set on it, and there are no decals on the model. I scanned the decals and used a plotter-cutter to make masks. It's painted with Gunze laquers and Alclad.

Great work there Jim. The "Frank" is one of my favorite Japanese aircraft of the WW2 period. I wish there was one flying today. Your salt chipping technique is great too. I generally am afraid to weather my machines, I tend to like them clean anyway. You have done the model justice. Thanks again, Russell
