According to the museum:
“Although it lasted only a few years, World War II involved hundreds of different types of aircraft and was the most prolific period of airplane production ever. Dozens of countries ultimately became combatants in the war and of these, many flew military aircraft. This collection of 1/72 scale models represents over 400 of these aircraft, probably the most complete collection of its kind. These models were constructed by Dr. Logan Holtgrewe over a period of seven years.”
Shown below are some of the seaplane models in the display.
The Aichi Kokuki KK (愛知航空機株式会社) produced several aircraft designs for the Imperial Japanese Navy.
