    I just received this in a mail from another forum today

    Japan Stripes

    The text is very informative and well worth the time to read.

    If the Google translate link in the middle of the article does not work for you (I gave it 10 minutes then gave up) the link at the bottom to the museum site is excellent. Even though the site is in Japanese the additional photos are worth the visit. You may have to refresh the page to get a decent look at some pictures

    Thanks for shedding light on them, MiTasol :thumbleft:
    They are junk planes but will help reverse engineering in the future.
    In fact, a TV drama production researched the Ki-27 airframe well to make detailed replicas a few years ago.
