I'm having trouble finding a good, detailed photo of the water rudder at the back of the main float of the A6M2-N "Rufe". Does anyone have a good picture of this? The best I have is a drawing from report CEE 880, but I'd really like to see an actual photo of it.

I hope someone can help. Many thanks!

It doesn't look that complicated does it.

Not from a distance, but I need more detail than this.
I think the bottom mount is a lug on a T-beam, but I'm not sure about that. The top mount appears to be housed inside an aerodynamic fairing and also contains the steering link mechanism.
