Have you tried the folks at the J-Board?
If they don't collectively know, nobody does.
Also, "Combined Fleet" page says she was taken over "early May," not the day before she was ,sunk (though close). So there may have been a couple of more days to fit a rudimentary armament. And there must be some basis for the Combined Fleet image painting of her in grey, albeit without visible armament. Just thoughts....
: I would like to convert a Mercator Cap
: Finisterre into her WW2 configeration as
: Taiyo Maru. There is a very helpful colour
: picture of her on the Combined Fleet web
: site which mentions that at her sinking she
: had over 50 gunners on board.
: However, the picture doesn't appear to show
: any guns.
: Is anyone able to help identify the
: positioning etc of the guns?
