Default Diamond Katana

A Diamond Katana DA-20 would be a very nice new model.

Default DA20-C1 Katana Photo

Here is a photo of the Katana I told you about. Itīs similar (but much more modern and better) plane than the Tomahawk.

Default Suggestions

How about a Kawasaki Ki-61 or Ki-100, IAR-80, Hawker Typhoon/Tempest, Martin B-26, Junkers JU-88. Except for the twins, something in about a 72 inch wingspan and priced so you don't have to mortgage the house to afford one. A real plus would be the ability to use available off-the-shelf components (retracts come to mind).

I PLAN ON CONVERTING A GIANTSCALEPLANES.COM 103" W/S TEXAN INTO A D3A OR AICHI AM-17 VAL. THIS WAS DONE ON THE FULL SCALES FOR THE MOVIE'S TORA TORA TORA AND PEARL HARBOR. I GUESS THIS WOULD MAKE THE MODEL SCALE. MODIFYING THE TAIL CONE AND RUDDER SHOULD BE EASY. EVEN THE CANOPY SHOULD'NT BE TO DIFFICULT, BUT MAKING THE SPATZ OR WHEELS PANTS IS GOING TO BE CHALLENGING. THE WING MOD WONT BE EASY EITHER, BUT SHOULD BE A NICE LOOKING MODEL WHEN FINISHED. ARE THERE ANY KITS OF THIS AIRCRAFT AVAILABLE ON THE MARKET? I'D HATE TO WAIST TIME AND MONEY, NOT TO MENTION AN AT-6 IF THERE IS. I KNOW REIDS QUALITY PRODUCTS MAKES A NAKAJIMA, BUT IS THAT ALL THATS AVAILABLE?
