Superb photo right down to the officer on the bridge with his binoculars. I am looking for plans or 3 view of the Nakajima Ki-4 Army Type 94 seen here, which has beautiful eliptical form plus dihedral, simple wing braces and generous flying surfaces making it an excellent flying peanut scale subject. Can onyone help ? Fly high Tony

After a close look - none of these planes on the flight deck of Kaga are Ki-4, A2N nor B2M. The plane in the foreground is probably an A4N. I shall check. Even so, I need a 3 view or drawing of the Ki-4, exellent flying peanut scale subject of which the records say many were shot down. I would like to see sites like this put out good 3Views and accurated cross-sectyional drawings now t.hat flying models are bbecoming much easier to buiod and fly. Fly high Tony

STANDBY TO LAUNCH AIRCRAFT 1937! The Kaga had an air group made up of 16 Nakajima A2N Fighters, 16 Aichi D1A Dive Bombers and 28 Mitsubishi B2M Torpedo Bombers. MYSTERY KI-4: Aircraft was designed by Nakajima and used by the(IJAAF)Imperial Japanese Army Air Force, and was never used by the Imperial Navy However, the army did test a seaplane version.
