Do you plan doing more? Really love these  8)

I'm busy with the next set of Luftwaffe projects, but I'm sort of gathering reference bits and pieces for either British, Italian, French or Japanese to do afterwards.

But if I have enough to make a set then yes Japanese it will be.

Best regards

Me too. :)

The last of my Japanese stuff.
Beautiful R2Y2 work.  I'm partial to either wing root intakes or underwing engines.  That nose intake would lead to considerable flow losses and distorted flow; neither of which makes for good engine performance.  I've schemed the concept of a R2Y3 with wing root intakes and a swept wing, much like the Messerschmitt P.1100B.

Not for a fair while, I've got to find out where that drawing went (it was done before I went to Connecticut for 2-1/2 years and everything got "rearranged" by SWMBO while I was gone).

Thoughts for a couple mods on either the wing-root intake or underwing engine variants of the R2Y2 - a radar nose like the S1A1 nightfighter or bombs or drop tanks under pylons on the forward fuselage.  Somewhere I've got concept drawings on both of these.
