Kairyu Special Submarine
If anyone would like another view, Ill get it if ive got it.
Note the 2 holes (the larger one was caused by an attack by an US destroyer (I think)).

Kaiten Typ. 10 (prototype)
note the small size-must have been hell in there not to mention the fact that you were facing certian death.....
the latter 2 fotos show the periscope of the kaiten and what it looks like to look inside.

IJN Yamato could you tell what kind of material that's made of?????

Major Walter Schmidt

I saw a sign that said the bulkhead is made of wood and the deck is made of real wood. I guess the rest is mde of metal, resin, plastic and urathane. saw a foto during the "construction" some worker inside the model....

Glad to see this thread, Herr Major. :)
The Kaiten are also interesting, it being so few now remain to be seen, so anything on them is a real plus.

I do have a book on them, but that is a totally different thread.

Regards, Uyraell.
