Thanks, I've collecting an excel database on all the world military aircrafts (all military crafts from scouts to heavy bombers, including transports but not trainers!) and I'm currently at the Mitubishi series. (only started Japanese yet!)

But I've already finished the ships of all the world navies From Corvettes to Battleships!

As it says in the thread on the What-If modelers wbsite: "The Ki-47 was an unbuilt Mitsubishi attack aircraft project, but I don't know anymore about it than that, so I just made up a story." The model built is just conjecture of what it could have been if Mitsubishi built it.

I too like collecting data since i was a child (on paper notebook, before personal computing time), and I share it here www.vignaud.org. Sorry, but the website is only in French. Someday, I will probably make it multi-language.

In 1937, the IJA changed their research policy and planned to develop twin engine, two seat bomber escort fighter.
Nakajima Ki-37, Kawasaki Ki-38 and Mitsubishi Ki-39 were studied based on this the IJA's plan.
But both Ki-37, Ki-38 and Ki-39 basic design results did not fulfill the IJA's requirement.
Later twin engine fighter was realized by Kawassaki's redesigned Ki-38 as Ki-45.
It's very difficult to find drawings and technical data of these aircraft in Japanese sources because almost these projects terminated when basic design phase.
Source of drawing : usual source.(encyclopedia...) ;)
And you tube.

I know that, what I like to know about the planes I've listed are data: Engines, speed, range, weapons.

Ki-35 Reconnaissance Plane
Ki-39 Heavy Fighter
Ki-40 Reconnaissance Plane
Ki-42 Heavy Bomber
Ki-47 Light Bomber
Ki-50 Heavy Bomber
Ki-65 Light Bomber/Attacker
Ki-99 Fighter
Ki-103 Light Bomber/Attacker
Ki-112 Medium/Heavy Bomber
Ki-118 Fighter
On the site http://military.sakura.ne.jp/ac/index_army.htm,
it lists the Ki-65 as a prototype fighter. In the manufacturers column it lists it as a Manchurian plane.
In regards to the Ki-103 it refers to the Ki-83, and within the text for that type it states that "Development of the reconnaissance aircraft type (Ki 95) and the assault aircraft type (Ki 103) has been suspended midway due to the deterioration of the war situation and the completion of the aircraft of other companies." One would imagine that had the Ki-103 been built it would have used the same powerplants, and probably a similar sized airframe as the Ki-83
In regards to the Ki-112 it refers to the KI-67 and within the description it states that the Ki-112 was a version "made entirely of wood. Plan only".
Interestingly on the Ki-118 it lists this as a fighter project with both Mitsubishi and Kawasaki as manufacturer.

Ki-118 short range fighter (Interceptor?)
Mission
It is a short-range fighter that the Imperial Japanese Army planned to order against Mitsubishi.
Aircraft overview
The Ki-118 short-range fighter was a short-range fighter that the Imperial Japanese Army planned to order against Mitsubishi in 1945. It is known that the engine of this fighter was scheduled for HA211(Mitsubishi HA43, MK9A). Mitsubishi did not have the spare power of the design department to prototype a new fighter at that time. It is presumed that the fighter used a plan that already existed, but details are unknown. It may be an army version of Reppu-Kai.

Ki 112 short-range bomber
mission

Attacking enemy airfield facilities and ground aircraft, enemy critical areas, enemy ship attack
Overview
In 1944, basic research of Ki 112 was started in Mitsubishi. Initially, Mitsubishi Ha214FU with valkan coupling drive supercharger was selected as the engine and the design of this airplane was advanced, but in October 1944, the Ministry of Defense requested the change to Ha214RU turbocharged engine. As Mitsubishi showed disappointment with this, the design work was stalled and was canceled without progress.
