Kawasaki Ki-61 Tony (oz11893)
About this Plan
Kawasaki Ki-61-2 Tony. Radio control scale model WWII Japanese fighter. Wingspan 1740mm for 60 engine.
Note this pdf is derived from the raw scan posted by mtthwcrss on RCGroups (see Datafile). This version here has been cleaned up and aligned, this is now a 400 dpi 2 colour bitmap pdf.
Note there is no printwood with this plan, but it may be useful to cross-check this plan against the Feb 1967 RCM plan Kawasaki Hien Tony (oz9047) by Jack Albrecht, since he says in his article: "The R/C plans presented herein are modifications of those supplied by Masahiro Kato in his Japanese kit of the same model."
Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

ScaleType: This (oz11893) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.
If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.
ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kawasaki_Ki-61
Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

User commentsI own the original MK kit, its correct wingspan is 55 inch.

Is it perhaps possible, Simon, that MK made two kits at different sizes?

Two kits from MK model of Mr. Kato:
0518 KAWASAKI KI-61 HIEN Junior WS 1400mm .40
0519 KAWASAKI KI-61 HIEN WS 1740mm .60

Many thanks to Pit for scan of MK catalog, showing the 2 different kits [pic 003]. Have added ref 0519 to this listing now.

* Credit field
The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.
This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
