Hi Oceanskimmer. Here is a cutting from an old magazine. I have a large 3 view,too big to post but i will get it reduced and post it tomorrow.

The UF-XS was originaly a Grumman Albatross but the Japs being the worlds great improvers turned it into something else. From this they developed their big jobs.

Welllll, I don't have a GOOD 3 view, but I can offer these.
Mostly from old Japanese magazines (who's titles I no longer remember).

Here is the 3 view that i drew 25 years ago. I have noticed that i left off the scale and i have lost the o/a dimensions.
If anyone can help with dimensions please do. Also no sections but if you are making a model then you might work them out from Mr Widgeons photos.
I will be posting an article on the model section about sections soon.
