Kyushu K11W "Shiragiku" pt. 2
Three photos from a vintage publication dated January 24, 1945 of "Shiragiku" in the production line of Kyushu Hikoki K.K. The article entitled "Tomari komi de hiki zosan" (Staying in the factory to build more planes) was praising the factory workers who stayed and slept in the factory to increase production.
Admitedly the photos are not of the best quality but by 1945 all Japanese publications were of the worst paper and printing quality due to material shortages.
(Note the weird looking building like a human head in the background)
