    Greetings my friend. Today I visited RAF Cosford Museum and took a few photos of the Ki-64 for you. I must apologise for the poor photographs, I was using my phone camera. However a friend of mine with a far better camera was on hand to help out, and as soon as he sends his shots to me I'll pass them on to you.

    I have the photos I posted in much higher resolution so if you pm me with an email address I'll send them, they are quite large and far better.

    Colours and markings are RAF interpretations, more to prevent further corrosion than totally accurate, but close enough to 'factory fresh' Nice pics still though, cheers for posting them.
