Grumman/Shin Meiwa ASR-544-4
As well as solo projects, Shin Meiwa also collaborated with Grumman, designing an advanced ASW flying boat.
Amongst the advanced features was the inclusion of an ACLS, so becoming more of a flying hovercraft than a true seaplane.
Painted in the colours of an S-2E Tracker of VS-41, and as a replacement to the JMSDF PS-1.
Corrected the air ducting for the ACLS.
