IJN Akagi, Hasegawa 1:700 Scale – The Akagi was built 6 years ago or so. I replaced all of the AA and gun-mount splinter shields with brass scrap to take away the heaviness. I also added struts under overhangs and used the Toms Models carrier set for this ship. I feel I should build this model again some day with the benefit of better research and newer techniques, as it is the most amazing carrier with its port side island and huge funnel.
IJN Kaga, Hasegawa 1:700 Scale – The Kaga has all of the same comments as above. Kaga is another really great looking ship. I built the model at about the same time as Akagi.
The IJN Battleship is the 1/700 Kongo built about 6-7 years ago with a Flagship Models photo-etched set. The cruisers are IJN Kiso and Tenryu, both 1/700 scale Tamiya models.
