I was fumblng my way through the "Victory at Sea" DVD and came across these images of Japanese Bombers hitting Guadalcanal and Tulagi. What the heck are these things, I thought I knew just about every AC in WW2 and can't place these. The first is a shot of the AC in formation and the second is a closeup shot of one of the bombers nose section;

To link to photobucket, hit the above (2nd from right) icon at the top of the reply page and highlight and copy (control-C) the whole first line of the three below the photo. Then paste (control-V) where you want the photo.

Should work!

Thanks AntEater! I thought I was pretty familier with the Japanese AC but this one threw me for a loop. Pretty neat plane though, it almost looks like a baby B-25 <ggg.> All the best, LongHorn

Definitely a Nell. The Solomons were primarily an IJN show, aircraft wise, and the Ki-21 had a single tail design, and a much fatter fuselage.

Most definitely a Nell, like the ones who helped sink the Repulse and the Prince of Wales in 1941.
