Frank by itifonhom Frank by itifonhom
The Nakajima Ki-84 "Hayate" was a single-seat fighter used by the Imperial Japanese Army Air Force in World War II. The Allied reporting name was "Frank", the Japanese Army designation was Army Type 4 Fighter. Featuring excellent performance and high maneuverability, the Ki-84 was considered to be the best Japanese fighter to see large scale operations during World War II. It was able to match any Allied fighter, and to intercept the high-flying B-29 Superfortresses. Its powerful armament (that could include two 30 mm and two 20 mm cannon) increased its lethality. 3,514 aircraft were built.
The Ki-84 Hayate in this image belongs to the 2nd chutai, 101st sentai based at Miyakonojo airfield, Kyushu, Japan, June 1945, according to the book "Nakajima Ki-84 Hayate" by Leszek A. Wieliczko. The pilot is unknown and we see him here trying to intercept some B-29s Superfortresses belonging to the 29th BG, 314 BW which started bombing Japan on 25th February 1945. The location of the fight is just near Mount Fuji. I donīt claim this to be a well researched scene, donīt know if such an encounter ever took place but maybe itīs a probable one.
Credits: Ki84 from bazze, B-29 from Neil Wilson, background image from Takashi H. Textures for both Ki-84 and B-29 created by me. After the image was finished I noticed I missed the aircraft numbers on the B-29s and also I have some day to learn to make some "real" rivets on my textures instead of just "holes" but thatīs it for now.

Oh my baby! This is the aircraft I used the most in the game Aces High. It could hover like a helicopter! lol In reality it was an amazing machine, close to the performance of a P-51 but far more nimble. Beautiful work!

WRONG!! THIS IS THE NAKAJIMA KI43 HYABUSA!! ALLIES NAMED IT OSCAR!!

itifonhom Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
No, Iīm afraid itīs not the KI-43, the "Oscar" had only one exhaust tube on every side, had no wing armament and never received a four blade propeller. Hereīs the link to the original 3D model: [link]

My aplogies, I am an aviation fanatic. It looks VERY SIMILIAR to The Ki43 Oscar. ESPECIALLY the tail & paint job!! VERY DIFFICULT 2 tell apart!!

No need to apologize my friend, I am an aviation lunatic myself and I thank you for your comment! The Ki-84 was the replacement for the Ki-43 and from the same manufacturer, in fact, it was almost a better version of the "Oscar", so they look pretty much the same except the small details I've already mentioned.
