This is the 1:700 scale model from Aoshima of the IJN Haruzuki, a 1945 version of an Akizuki Class Destroyer. Some of the Photo-Etch came with the kit and some Photo-Etch is GMM. This is my 2nd model and the first time that I used Photo-Etch. I should have taken the advice of veteran modelers when they suggested working Photo-Etch parts on a 1:350 model first.
