Nakajima Type 1 fighter, Ki-43 Hayabusa (Oscar)
I know it's just another silver model, but you still have to love it. The model is just plain appealing.

Beside the "if this wasn't a diecast it would be an iron" heft of Marushin models, the entire line has an aura of accuracy. It's obvious that the shapes of the cowl, fuselage, wings, empennage, and canopy are right-on and need no tweaks. Add this to the general beauty of Japanese fighter and bomber designs of the WWII era, and these models are nigh to irresistable. Good stuff.
