J2M3 Raiden and Ki-44 Shoki references


Recommended Posts

I'm looking for some references for these machines, sadly I can't really find any books which show detailed images of the airplane.  I have the Aero Detail books on the Ki-84, N1K2, A6M, Ki-43, etc and am wondering if there's anything similar for these machines.  I know that Zoukei Mura did a "Concept Notes" book on the Raiden, but those seem to be unavailable anywhere.

  • Daywalker changed the title to J2M3 Raiden and Ki-44 Shoki references

I could be wrong, but I'm under the impression that Model Art only contains images of models.

I checked Famous Airplanes of the World (FAOW), but didn't find anything on the Tojo. Maru Mechanic or the smaller Mechanism of Military Aircraft are good references.

I can also vouch for the quality of Maru Machanic publications, at last for drawings and the like. The B&W pictures are of more limited quality, but then it’s also maybe a function of the period originals …

Thank you Bill and Hubert, I was not familiar with that publication - I am very looking forward to learning more about them.  And, at those prices, I can swing getting a couple of them.

Bill - Thank you for taking the time to look for them and post the links, MUCH appreciated!
