I'm going to build simultaneously Ki-43-II in 1:32nd and 1:48th scale.
Both kits from Hasegawa.
Those raised panel lines in large scale Oscar... will remain. I'm going to try to recreate the way the panels were installed, each one overlapping the edge of the next.
In general, I will be focused on that point and weathering, with the cockpit closed.
In case of 1:48th scale Oscar a slightly different approach, as I'm going to use a resin cockpit from SBS (just amazing), photo-etched parts and some other upgrades - so that the level of detail will not be less than in 1:32nd - if not better.
