This is the 1:500 scale Nichimo Hyuga with Gold Medal Models IJN Battleship bass photo-etch set. Itís painted with Testorís Marine colors with Kure Naval Arsenal Grey. There is some light scratch-building involving the AA rocket launchers at the rear of the flight deck. This is my first serious attempt at photographing a model.
