I Bombed Pearl Harbor (1962)

(Hawai Middouei daikaikusen: Taiheiyo no arashi)

  • In this Japanese movie the flying aircraft, except for a few T6-trainers in a scene where American planes attack the Japanese ships, are all models. Of course the ships are models too. The full size carrier-deck is a disguised dock complete with a built-up "island"-structure, and the full-sized planes on the deck are wooden mock-ups. When their wings are folded, you can see that they fold by means of ordinary door-hinges... Some of the planes in the service-area below deck are painted on the wall behind the mock-ups. But, I think it is very well done, and at least the planes look much more like real "Zeros", "Kates" and "Vals", than they did in "Tora! Tora! Tora!". - Olav Westerman

It is not a naval air station it is a Marine Corps Base. Also it is about 3 hours from LA.
