Hi again after long while. I recently finished some new 3d pieces so I thought I may drop these by. Below my latest (and some older) artwork for IJN's Mizuno Shinryū II. If you feel like it, look up more on https://www.artstation.com/senshi-isamu or https://www.deviantart.com/senshi-isamu. Cheers!
I've tried to collect the WW2 Japanese radar Type designation systems with data and if possible photos and drawings.
Gathered from these sources:
I have quite a bit of information on this design but a couple sources imply that early on there was consideration of using at least one twin turret for the 135mm guns. Can anyone verify if this was true and, if so, what was the intended arrangement of the guns?

A knotty design conundrum! Using some 'imagineering', what if the Curtis XP55 'Ascender' and the Kyushu J7W 'Shinden' went into production and both spawned navalised variants for carrier deployment. The thorny issue of deck landing arises; 3-point tricycle landing gear means the awkward...
It is unclear if she was still in service post-World War II, but if she was still around in 1948 it is debatable whether or not she would have been technically entitled to the HMAFV (His Majesty's Air Force Vessel) prefix, given that she wasn't a powered vessel.
I've decided to turn this into a hub for all the KM ship plans and information I currently have. I may not be able to include pictures of everything in this OP so the link to the Google Drive containing everything in its highest quality is included below. If you have questions about the...

I'm putting together an article on the Wireless Set No. 10, which deserves to be MUCH better known - it was the first TDM and PCM comms system in the world. Sadly there is very little info on it, but I know that "Wireless for the Warrior" had a relatively detailed description including post-war...
