Hi 3-side view and other view of Z-plane.
I feel dihedral is little small and main landing gears are little strange. It's difficult to accommodate.

Hi blackkite san these are very good photos and pics of the Fugaku!
Isay again the USA has all the luck of the world that japan hasnt the time to develop this awsome bomber further,and that the japanese has not the bomb in time.
Otherwhise they were facing a atomic respomse on maybe San Francisco and Los Angeles for bombing Hiroshima and Nagasaki
best regards T-50

This cannot be right; bomb sights usually demanded a flat window.

Beatiful !
Z-Plane or better G10N1 Fugaku et similars !
Really nice civil variant : but i don't know if that's a speculation or really inspired by projects for also a civil variant !

Hi. Good question!!
The team which constructing this model got the real Chikuhei's blue prints of this transport version that discovered by Mr.Shoda(Shoda enterprise) in 2008.  Chikuhei and the Fugaku project team members had the dream to travel around the world by this transport after the war.
