    If you are modelling Palau, then download this issue of Naval Aviation News. It has some good photos, and a aerial recon photo with details on building and gun emplacements for the Japanese field on Peleliu:

    The Palau islands are important IMO. There were around 3 bases, one was Koror. It's also a good place to go for a swim.

    Btw, i'd like to see the Kwajalein Atoll as well. There was a pretty big air raid going on over Kwajalein in 44 IIRC, beside numerous smaller battles.
