This is quite an interesting aircraft and has recieved very little attention from model companies. It's often considered one of the most areodynamicly clean aircraft made during WW2. The Ki 46 first flew in 1939 so would have been in service at the time of Peal Harbour.
The first one's (Ki 46-1) managed 312 mph at over 26,000 ft on only two 850 hp engines. the Ki 45-II managed 375 mph at 19,000 ft that's as fast or faster than the Mosquito with less hp (Two 1500 hp engines ) and a range of over 1500 miles, all by 1941. there was even talk of Germany producing it under licence, it was that good. Like the Mossy it often went unarmed as nothing could catch it at that altitude. It was only quite late in the war that the newer fighters had any chance of intercepting it.
The final version (Ki 46-III ) could manage 397 mph with boosted engines and had a range of almost 2,500 miles.
This is one aircraft that Airfix could easily re-tool,and it would sit nicely with the Zero and Kates, as this old kit is a bit sparten by todays standards, though it still make up reasonably well. We can always live in hope.
Looking forwards to seeing the final result.
Remember we do this for fun John the Pom
