Yokosuka K5Y Willow reference?

I just rifled through my limited stash here in Singapore.   I might have brought this arawasi paperback back to California already.  

Im in the process of moving back to the states early next year and I’m bringing back as much as possible in between trips.  

 

The journal has a lot of information and a couple really unique orange and green schemes along with both float and land based aircraft line drawings  The last few pages also have a few shots of the only surviving Willow down in Indonesia.   Pretty rough shape but it’s the only one left.   I ordered this online direct from Arawasi.  If I find it, i’ll Certainly provide the ISBN number.  I believe I found all the information on the Japanese WWII aircraft site with order information on where to order it from.  I also ordered an additional Ki-44 references.  It came to Singapore in no time.    

 

Still searching Gent’s.  

Troy, I pulled mine out and gave him the ISBN two posts before you last, so you don't have to do a deep dive.

Thanks Ray.  I’m trying to pack two kits into one every box box and hopefully reduce what I need to ship back to the states.  Looking for the reference in a small apartment should be easy.  (One would think)!  

 

 The Willow reference is awesome isn’t it?   There are a couple really cool schemes in that book which need to be built.  Nothing says camouflage and an all orange bi-plane with OD green wavy stripes in trying to hide it.  Classic.

I assume we're discussing the Doyusha/Entex/Nitto kit here?

I think that is right. There is only one Willow out there! It is a pretty nice kit, too, for its age!

I must have build the Nitto Willow at least three different times in my youth.  As Ray mentioned above it was a nice kit in the day.   The fly wires were included, pilots, crew, float version, etc.  Who can say they have an orange bi plane in their collection?

I like the one on floats, so may have to consider eventually adding that to my stash.
