Thank you gentlemen for your respons.
Mabe i'm wrong , but are you sure these is the twoseater ?
I have seen some time ago in a Japanese book ( I can't remember the name of the book ),
a little drawing of a " Tenrai " with a longer cockpit !
Can it be that this was the two-seater in place of the one you are showing.
There were 6 aircraft build. 4 one-seaters and 2 two-seaters.
