I find it a comforting state more often than not...less to worry about. :cheers:
With all that's going on at the moment, and all the bad news over the last two years, that's a good strategy. :agree:

You have to be careful in this position.
I spent some rime setting up a tricky triangle for you, but it turned out that the military had cheated, using the same photo in two different places, with altered markings :doh:
So, for now, you're stuck with this one:

Doesn't look like anyone else is going for the 29-07-22, so I'll wrap it up in about 17 hours unless you ask for more time.

I tried for some time on this one but was unsuccessful, I though it might be a Short from the floats but the engine spacing and cockpit windows are wrong, no additional time would help as I have given up.

The Kawanishi H8K1 & K2 bore a close resemblance to the Short Sunderland.
The K2 was heavily defended with 20mm guns in the turrets.
The K1 had a narrow hull, which proved unstable in the water, so was widened in the K2.
Hard to pick that difference from the photo used, so K2 has been accepted as correct, though it's a K1 in reality.
Ben (TSR2), PaulK, Den (511Flyer)and Kevin Farnell, all got it first go:

Keith (Dev One) and Pete (Motormouse) nailed it on their second answer:

Thanks to the badgers and those who entered alternatives ;)

The strakes on flying surfaces appear in some K2images, but not others.
They do not seem to have been that common:

Can't do these combo ones. It's difficult enough for me to identify one aircraft, let alone halves of two. :lol:
