Indonesian Yokosuka K5Y1 "Willow" by Jacob Terlouw

This is my LS K5Y1. I built it some 40 years ago in AURI colours, did not bother then about cockpit details and guessed the Indonesians painted the undersurfaces grey. Arawasi proved some years ago that I was mistaken about that. This kit survived a lot of moving to other cities with the family ( many other kits did not). Last year I bought the AZ kit of the Akatonbo which is more up to the standards of nowadays. You can build it as the K5Y1 or K5Y2 and comes with some resin & P.E. parts for the cockpit and armament. Nicely detailed and decals for 205th  Special Attack Unit,
Takao Ku, Takuma Ku and Indonesian Airforce.

The Willow with the Duch markings as seen at the ESM (Euro Scale Modelling fair) 2012. Although you can’t see it the owner did a tremendous job with the rigging!
