Hi.

I recommend browsing ebay for a copy of the japanese language Gakken Series Issue 17 "I-Type submarines". It has a lot of US post-war detail pictures of the Sensuikan Toku class submarines including a fold-out of a color drawing.

And there is also a japanese language Gakken Special about I-400, maybe avaliable on hobbylink japan (www.hlj.com).

Or you can search online for "伊四〇〇" (Kanji for I400) or "潜水艦= 特=" (Kanji for Sensuikan Toku = special submarine) for infos. ;)


Yours

tom! ;)

Also, For the Seiran, try the Tamiya planes, and a company called Pit Road makes some Machienguns.
...It says its out of production though
