Planes for Akitsu Maru - a question

I was very pleased with free IJN Akitsu Maru paper model. It fits to my WW2 collection, so I've rescaled it to 1/400 scale, corrected the colors for a more faithful shade, added details, but .... problem is with aircrafts. Both types, ie Kokusai Ki-76 and Kayaba Ka-1 have only a flat hull, which I do not like. Can anyone advise me what to do with it? In this scale, it can be a very simple model, but at least with basic shapes ...

Not sure how reliable this is, but I found it pretty interesting.

Does mention the aircover just prior to when it was sunk too

Hi Gerry, I have already converted the Ki 76 to 3D and working on doing the same to the Ka 1. I can send you a copy if you wish. I am also working on the Akitsumaru, changing stuff and adding details. Will post a thread when I have finished the extra parts.

Thank you very much for your offer, I'll be very glad if you'd sent me your planes! My e-mail is jaromir.smid@seznam.cz
Model of Akitsu Maru is very nice, though simple and it's a good base for good looking model (in the style of my favourite JSC models) :-)
