Japanese Aircraft Online Model Contest 004 - LEON KLOKE

Hey there!
I hope I am not too late to sent you some pictures of my just finished Hayabusa.
I build it just for the contest and I am quite satisfied with the results - at least for my standards. I hope you like it. The scale is 1/72. Manufacturer is special hobby.

ARAWASIさまで行われましたアンケートの結果を拝見させていただきました。
多くの方の多くの希望が伝わってきました。
中にはかなりマニアックな機体もあり、皆様の知識の多さに驚きました。
ハセガワでは1/32零戦52型 1/72二式大型飛行艇と続けて大型キットを開発し
沢山の方に喜びのコメントをいただきました。
今後も大小問わず飛行機モデラーの皆様の期待に応えられるよう、
今回のアンケート結果も参考にさせていただきつつ、
新製品の開発を続けてまいりますので、今後ともよろしくお願いいたします。
 
(My name is Kuboyama of Hasegawa Corporation.
I was presented with the results of the questionnaire done by ARAWASI.
Many wishes from many people have been conveyed.
Among them were aircraft types only great (aviation) fans would know and I was surprised how knowledgeable everybody was.
We recently developed two large kits, the Zero Fighter Model 52 in 1/32 and the Type 2 flying boat "Emily" in 1/72 and many people sent us happy comments.
In Hasegawa, we will continue to develop new products, in order to meet the expectations, regardless of size, of all airplane modellers, taking ofcourse into account the results of this questionnaire.
Thank you all in advance for your continuous support.)
