Ki-61 Tony 640 underside
of right wing at PNG Museum
There is a stripe on the upper portion of the gear leg, also yellow identification stripe on the leading
edge of the wing. The opening at the top of the photo is the gun port for
the wing mounted machine gun (removed). This photo
was taken while the wings were being lifted and containered at the PNG
Museum for transport to Australia.
JIm Long adds:
"The paint stripe on the LG leg cover was originally a very dark glossy green, put on by the manufacturer to provide a gauge for checking the condition of the oleo strut. If it looks blue now, it is probably because it is so very weathered. The dark glossy green stripe had some black stenciled characters on it. There was also a small red stripe above the dark green stripe. Above the red stripe were four Japanese characters stenciled in black paint."
