AFAIK there is no photo with visible tailcodes of these aircraft.

Is there any chance that Fine Molds will upscale their 1/72 model to 1/48th?

Is it correct that this is the worlds first purpose built anti-submarine aircraft? Other well known airplanes such as the Catalina, Hudson, Ventura, and the FW-200 were originally designed for other rolls if I am not mistaken.

If you ask me,Lorna was the ugliest bird Japanese built in WW2. Makes the Ju-88 look gorgeous although I despise Luftwaffe planes!
