For the third picture,the translate is very interesting;

A tri-view of the two interceptors Ionezawa «Kingo», left,and Ionezawa called an emergency.
The quick eavesdroppers had to be piloted by brave pilots called "Shimbu".

I'm getting something more like: "Three-view [drawings] of two interceptors [-] Yonezawa 'Kingo', on the left, and a Yonezawa emergency type. These were fast interceptors to be flown by daring pilots called 'Shimbu' or courage."

I assume that 'Shimbu' is a reference to the Shimbu Tokubetsu-Kogekitai (Gathering of Courageous Forces) which would make these IJAAF aircraft. The naming is a bit more elusive. Both Kingo and Yonezawa are Japanese given names (unless Yonezawa refers to the capital city of Yamagata Prefecture).

Has anyone heard of Yonezawa as a name associated with aircraft building?
