  D5Y3 Model 33 Judy Manufacture Number 3957 Tail 33
IJN

Wartime History
Abandoned at Clark Field.

Wreckage
Selected as the best model from which to build a flying example for testing, because it was not badly damaged nor badly souvenired. Rebuilt over several months by TAIU, it was stripped to all silver with tail code S16 applied.
