    Hi Everyone,

    Just bought this Japanese seaplane model kit but was told that its quite an old production from Tamiya and thus contain some molding :shock:errors. Does anyone have any line drawings or pictures of this plane? Thanks

    Hi Guys,

    Than you very much for the replies and picture. The historical shots will make a good example for my next diorama. Thanks again :)

    Hi Airframes,

    Thanks for the encouragement. It is sort of a best guess thing. I have never been near any float plane or boat but I do know aluminum type surfaces do not rust even when immersed in sea water for long periods. Algae growth would be predominantly visible.

    Thanks again for the feedback :)
