Hi Mate

My source does not say so directly, but there is every reason to believe that they do.

Not an Aichi Mate.

Sorry, need to go.

It was the planned Zero successor Mitsubishi A7M Reppu.

...production was disrupted by an earthquake in December 1944 in the Nagoya region, and by Allied bombing, with only eight aircraft completed by the end of the war. The type never saw combat.
Open House

I may drop by briefly over the weekend, otherwise back on Tuesday.

No Martin, and before you ask, it's not a homebuilt either.

David, Is it a re-engined version of a more well known design? M

No Martin, but it was produced with several versions of power units.

Shortly after certification, the company went out of business.

Would you like the country?

It sure is - the tailwheel version.

I'll leave you to declare the OH, but only you and I are on thread.
