The Ki-4 is a Nakajima Type 94 Reconnaissance Plane, obsolete in 1941.
The Ku-4 is a Kayaba experimental tailless airplane. Probably a Ku-3 or Ku-3 tailless glider with an engine.

The photograph is a Ku-8 II because of the hinged door

Dear Fellow Aeroplane Fanciers, Great glider and interesting context. I wonder about Jap airborne ops of which I have never heard. Use of word "bugger" indicates Australian correspondent, as am I.
Please bear with me when I change the subject - I cannot find a drawing of the Nakajima Ki-4 Army Type 94 biplane - a superb subject for flying scale peanuts - my passion. It has beautiful eliptical wings, generous flying surfaces and dihedral, and lots served in China from 1934 as reconnaissance planes. Would be grateful for assistance Tony
I have been claiming in my lectures on Japanese Aircraft that these were used operationally in the Philipines and at Palembang. I am buggered if i can now recall where the hell I found that info. Can anyone help??
Mykla: No engine. (Hint: "Ku" was the Japanese Army designation for gliders. "Ki" was for powered airplanes.)
The Ku-8 was developed from the army Ki-59 transport by removing the engines, gas tanks, and revising the landing gear. The Ku-8-I could carry up to 18 troops, the Ku-8-II up to twenty.
Does it have an engine?
