    I don't think that is a J7W1, perhaps it's a smaller mockup of one or some type of a test bed?

    It's one of three MXY6 gliders used for testing of Cpt. Massaoki Tsuruno's design in flight in 1943.

    The same shot corrected with Gama option for making the image brighter.

    Maybe it's just me, but I liked Shinpachi's version because deep shadows forces the Shinden to the viewer's focus.

    Thank You, Shinpachi-san!

    I know that the artistic quality of the photo doesn't reveal as much detail as some people might like, but I liked your version better. It made the Shinden display appear mysterious and imposing!

    Mysterious and imposing. Yes, that would be what art students intended.
    Though I reported the same topic before, they dared to build their Shinden in the old original factory of Kyusyu Aircraft company which is now called Watanabe Ironworks. :)
