Here are some photographs of the Ise, BB/CV that I just finished. This model is Hasegawa’s old mold. The new tooling version appeared just after I had bought this kit. I had to make it a few modifications to upgrade it, such as the boat davits. I also added some details to her funnel. The most difficult thing for me was her railing because of the "S" shape that this has in some areas. It has been my first ship in months and my second in more than 20 years since the time that I gave up modeling. I started when I was 11.
