Pictured is the Japanese light cruiser Noshiro in the fall of 1944. This is the 1/700 scale Tamiya Yahagi tooling with a generous helping of corrections, scratch-building and photo-etch, including the very fine basic Agano class fret from Joe World. Special care was taken to drill out all ventilators and replace with brass mesh. The masts are completely scratch-built. Rigged with Dai Riki 9X .002". Of particular pride is the fact that I extrapolated, from conflicting data, what I firmly believe to be her correct final fit. Shortly after completion, Model Art #19 was released with corroborating line drawings based on recent research. Painted in Kure Grey, hull red & IJN linoleum.
