Once a F6F tried to kill a Pete,but was killed by this Mitsubishi 0-shiki 2 seater-observation bi-plane during the last war. This might have been the reason IJN began to adopt Pete and to replace other seaplanes for capital ships such as JJN battleships and heavy cruisers.

Am about to clovn 2 x Pete for cruiser Chokai 1944 from planes of  cruiser Aoba 1944,in 1/100 scale. Scratch buidling seems to be the only way coz there´s no model available on this scale in the market. Only 1/96, yes.

cheers,
