This is IJN heavy cruiser 'Suzuya', sister ship of Mogami and my first warship after moving to USA. The kit is from Tamiya and for detail-up, I used Pit-Road's 'Mikuma & Suzuya' photo-etch set. I've not cared for Pit-Road's photo-etch sets in the past, but this set made me happy. For railing and AA guns, I used Gold Medal Models ultrafine railing and FineMold's, respectively.
