IJAAF & IJNAF wrecked aircraft #52 - Mitsubishi Ki-46 "Dinah" pt.1 - video

Last weekend I got really excited when I stumbled on a bunch of very short but extremely interesting color videos I had never seen before. We start today with one featuring Mitsubishi Ki-46 "Dinah", from HERE.

As you can see, in the beginning of the video the aircraft in the foreground on the left is a Ki-46-II. Note the lighter color (hairyokushoku) on most of the nose and the fuselage. Note also the brown overall color of the aircraft in the background.

The second aircraft we can see is a Ki-46-III.
I toyed a bit with the color and it gives me a green top camouflage color. Could be brown though...

Then we get a few shots of the rear cockpit. Note the camera on the floor and the interesting overall interior color.
In the last shot above, we can see the exterior of the canopy which is painted in light color. So, presumably this is the cockpit of the Ki-46-II we saw above.

Hi George,
Nice find and interesting pic's!
that last shot- could that be the back(observer) seat? considering it's not placed in the center.
