The E11K was a late 1930s night reconnaissance/spotter seaplane designed to be operated from cruiser class ships. This utterly elegant gull-winged cantilever monoplane was powered by a single pusher Hiro Type 91 engine strut mounted above the fuselage (an old favorite of mine) that drove a four-bladed propeller. Curiously for such a stylish aircraft, and in order to improve the cooling effects, its engine radiator was placed in a quite hideous fairing over the rear fuselage just behind the prop. Only 2 were ever built and they ended their days serving as transports.
Lovely coloured pic. Not a fan of this kind of “retouch”, but…..
