Dave's Cool & Useful Links

Japanese Aircraft/Modeling Links

X-Planes of the Japanese Army/Navy - 1946. Hikoki, which roughly means airplane, and the year 1946 combine to present to you what might have been had the Japanese air-arm and industry had another year with which to develop and deploy their experimental aircraft. While much has been done on the German experimental weapons and the speculative "what ifs"concerning their, in some cases, actual deployment to combat units, but more of their potential had more time been allotted to the Germans...there is a vacuum when it comes to looking at what the Japanese were developing. 

Asahi Journal Online supplement - Scott Hoffman's supplement to the regular Asahi Journal. A great source for in-depth information.

Japanese Radios and Equipment Ok, so it doesn't sound like that big a deal, but it is!  This is a terrific website to checkout what all the various cockpit details really look like  Well worth the look!

Zero Fighter World - Have you hugged your Zero today?  Go here and you'll have that chance.  Great site on a great aircraft.
