    Here is the two seat trainer version of the A6M "Claude". I don't know how the rear seater could see forward with the crash pylon in the way ! I've been working on these two kits for about two months now. Kit is 1/72 scale resin from Chorosky in Poland. If you ever get a chance, build one of thier kits.

    Nice work again, Ed.
    Instructor was lucky as this model was cancelled after only 20 manufactured :)

    I wonder what the "fins" in front of the stabilizers were for.
    Nice looking model!

    If you look at the A5M2 in my other thread you will see the fuselage has been cut down for the second seat. With that much side area missing, they made up for it with the 'fins".
