This English language periodical is dedicated to the Japanese aviation and lavishly illustrated throughout. The contents include: Nakajima E8N “Dave”- 25 black/white photos (some published for the very first time), high-quality colour profiles and multi-view scale illustrations in 1/48, of this rather forgotten but important floatplane of the IJNAF; The Fukuda Hikari 6.2 Glider; From Art Deco to Bauhaus – Assisted by excellent photos and artwork, Arawasi International brings you a story within a story: How the elegant Nippon Kokusai TK-3 civil transport morphed into the functional Kokusai Ki-59 military utility; Hiro’s Farewell: H4H Flying Boat Series – A must-read for all Imperial Japanese Naval Air Force (IJNAF) fans! Comes complete with great photos, two of which has never been published before! Just in case you’re ever asked, “What was the first IJNAF flying boat to see service in a war zone?”; Japanese Civil Aircraft Registers Up To 1945 – An article that puts in order and explains the system by which Japanese civilian aircraft received their registrations and markings. Young Japan: Forgotten Symbol of Pioneer Era, Pt. 1 – In 1931, two Japanese pilots-one of whom had only recently qualified-set out to fly from Tokyo to Rome in a trainer biplane that had been rejected by the military; Wewak, the Early Days Pt.2- Second and final part of an article on this significant IJAAF base accompanied by vintage photos.
