Number 16 is a B5N.
The Corsair tail has more rudder and it actually extends to the front of the fin and is fabric covered, sort of like this one:

#4 seems reminiscent of a Helldiver.
#10 looks like a Dauntless.

It looks like the rest have already been identified.

What I find most pleasing about this bird, is the wide-track landing gear, which makes for very stable, high speed riding in the rough. A very nice bird to ride...err fly http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

Re the Kate replica,though it was largely Vultee BT13,I believe it also used parts of the AT6/HARVARD,as I mentioned in my answer to the quiz.-Look at the sweepback on the outer wing.Incidentally,I think that they are wrong about the Spit XIV,unless it is supposed to be marked up in the squadron markings carried by the later Mk 22.Thanks for the quiz,
Regards
