Mmm, yeah.

I remember someone posting that link once before - but those Oscar replicas don't look any less sexy by the passing of time.

Oh why? Why don't I have a pilot's license and the inordinate amounts of cash required to purchase one of those lovely birds?

Speaking of which...is that a model that isn't in the game? Because it looks to me like the base of a reflector sight in that cockpit rather than a telescopic sight.

It's a Ki-43II it's in the game but AI only.

Here is a photo from the Oscar's recent first flight...

Unfortunately one of the aircraft's landing gear collapsed recently so it'll be a number of months before this aircraft takes to the air again.

Beautiful aircraft... it'd be great to see more of these types of projects.

A shame...could be fun to fly a late war Oscar. They were used all the way through.
