Ki-43 Hayabusa fuselage?

Found this picture on E-BAy. Is this the fuselage of a Ki-43 Hayabusa?

Don't think so, canopy looks too bird-cage and fuselage lacks the big access panel :

I'll rather bet on a Mitsubishi Ki.30 :

Would tend to agree udf, also look at the base of the fin, tho the rectangular opening appears to be too far aft.

Think you are right about the Ki.30 ANN, see the 3rd photo down on this link. A very similar wreck.
In March 1942 there were 2 Sentai with ANNs in Burma, 27th ( Toungoo) and 31st (Phitsanulok) with 5th Air Div. ( HQ Rangoon). Rarely seen after then though some as Kamikaze.
