*1 - "Early 1960s Japanese kit with high gloss box top and very collectible box art. Wings fold and has options of two different (open or closed) windshields. Model is made to be motorized. Includes wiring, display stand and clear battery box. As with most all early Japanese motorized kits, the motor/battery box was not included for customs/import reasons. "(From here) Bad kit with plenty of pimples. 

*2 - FToys have released four Zuiun versions pre-painted and ready-to-assemble
in their "Seaplane Collection 2" series. 

*3 - As far as I know there has never been released any Zuiun kit in larger scale. Correct?

Altough the 'early sixties' kits of japanese warplanes were bad by today's standard the boxart was quite good and inspiring(Aosima). When I find a nice one I always buy 'm, especially the Marusan 1/100 ones had nice boxes
Thanks for showing and sharing.
