Often mistaken during aerial combat with the more well-known Mitsubishi "Zero," the Nakajima Ki-43 was designated "Oscar" by Allied forces. Extraordinarily maneuverable with fast climbing capabilities, the Oscar wreaked havoc across the Pacific theater. Its long range and incredible performance made it virtually untouchable especially compared to the P-51 Mustang. The Hangar 9® Ki-43 Oscar 50-60cc 88" ARF brings this nimble warbird to life in a convenient scale model with unbeatable authenticity.
