    Hello everyone,

    I am in the progress of building a vac-form model of the KI-21 IIb. I have quite a bit of detail on everything with the exception of the dorsal turret and the radio operators position.

    I can make due with the turret, however, I see conflicting information on the location of the radio operator. I have Maru Mechanic and I see conflicting information. In most areas, there is inforation that leads me to believe that the operator sits behind the co-pilot. I also saw photos where the operator sits behind the pilot.

    Is there anyone who can shed some light on this?

    Thank you all.

    Try and find a copy of the Robert_C._Mikesh book "Japanese Aircraft Interiors 1940-1945"
    It has four pages on the Ki-21.
    If you cannot find that PM me and I will scan and upload those pages only

    Unfortunately, I gave up my copy of the book to a fellow modeler a while back. I appreciate your willingness to share.

    Thank you so much
