    Hi Lucky, Im not happy with these either. Maybe tommorrow Im going to see if I can improve them since I have a half day off from work. Thats actually how they look from the Japanese archive. I havent had a chance to go back but there are two more set's of documents for this aircraft that I have not gone through.

    Thanks though actually Shinpachi found the reference number for the Japanese archives, I just located them and made them into a pdf file.

    Hi everybody
    Thank you very much Shinpachi this is really great stuff.
    These plans are very useful for me to produce a model of N1K2. Here is a link to one of my achievements for those interested. Go to the bottom of the page to see the finished model.

    Hi Thorlifter,
    Yes, this is my model. I ended on September 2 2008. I intend to make a shidenkai, in the same spirit. That is why the manual scanned by Micdrow is so important to me.

    Hi Lucky,

    Ive tried a couple of things to enhance the pictures but Ive had no real success. I still have two more drawing sets to go through on this aircraft. I will try in the next couple of day to get at least one set done but the quality will probably be simular since thats the best the website has.

    All the best
    Paul

    Superb. I paricularly like the exhaust staining, very realistic.

    Hey Lucky,

    That's a Beautiful Hellcat! (From the USS Princeton, right?)

    I believe I MIGHT be able to help you out. It may take me a while though because I am not all that organised with my data. If you are impatient, look in the AeroDetail series book on the Shiden KAI. In the USA, we often can get books via Inter-Library loan from just about any place in the US. I got one of the AeroDetail books from a college in upstate New York a couple years ago. It did not cost me a thing, and 4 weeks was enough to scan what I wanted. I believe the drawings in these books are typically by a fellow named "Shigeru Nohara" and he does excellent work. The one for the Shiden-KAI has the dimensions between fuselage stations and just about every dimension you might be interested in. I actually own THAT particular book also, but have no clue where it is at the moment.

    A friend of mine once photocopied a similar set of drawings from Maru Mechanic for me and I scanned them. The problem there is that I have no idea WHERE those are also!

    My use of these drawings is for building 3D models for Combat Flight Simulator 1. Failing the drawings route, there is a Shiden-KAI sitting at NASM Udvar-Hazy about 30 miles from my house. I don't go there much though and you can only get so close to the aircraft during public hours.

    Regards.
    - Ivan.

    Here is my trial CG modeling of N1K2-J based on the manual Micdrow introduced. I assume it is useful:)

    Hi everybody and thanks for those nice comments.
    you're right, it's Richard Stambook Hellcat's from VF-27 on USS Princeton.
    I have the aerodetail and maru mechanic, which are very interesting, but the document posted by Micdrow is even more so. Thank you for your help and will wait for the moment because I undertook to redraw the N1K2-J manual.

    Thanks Shinpachi, great work, and very useful. Don't hesitate to post more! 8)

    Hello All,

    I hope this drawing is useful. A friend of mine scanned it for me a few years back, so I don't know the source. Can anyone figure out what the fuel tank capacities are on this aircraft?

    Sorry it took so long.
    - Ivan.
