Hobby Lobby Alfa Ki-84a Hayate Hobby Lobby Alfa Ki-84a Hayate
By Fitz Walker
In summary, the Alfa Ki-84 is a wonderful looking model that assembles extremely fast and flies great. The quality and detailing is pretty amazing, not to mention the high performance of the recommended power package. For a small model that will make a big impression, it is hard to beat Hayate. Oh, and kudos to Alfa for making a model that is “not a Zero”.
