All cruisers had the linoleum on the deck, not wood.
Also, it is a bit heavier caliber gun...
Don't know which it is but that is a very crafty way of getting the side barbettes and main deck together.
It appears to be a Kongo class battleship? Perhaps the Hiei? She kinda differed from the other 3 sisters, being a cadet ship prewar, then "remiliarized", and used as a test bed of sorts for all kinds of radar and stuff. I think she also tested some design concepts for the Yamato class.
If it is the Hiei, it will be my first purchase from GreMir! :grin:
Yes, this is IJN HIEI in 1942.
That's great news. I'm going to follow your progress closely. Hiei is one of my favorite IJN subjects.
IJN Hiei from GreMir
MacGregor decided to finally name his latest design, I see :grin:
I must admit that this is my favorite class of Japanese battleships, but not the favorite subject. Personally I preffer Kirishima, it just has this ring to the name. Well, maybee one day we will see all four of them
I agree Mike all 4 would be great, however still looking for those 2 "ugly sisters" Hyuga and Ise. Either as a full Battleship or even Hybridized. These were my favourite plastic ships when growing up. I had the hybrids because I could only afford one model at the time and couldn't make my mind up as to carrier or battleship, well the Japanese provided the answer. anyhows I'm in line too. This looks like one great ship MacGregor, good luck, don't mind the drools from the peanut gallery!
HIEI 1942?! Wonderful! Model looks beautiful.
Can I already place an order on the HIEI ???
Might want to check out his website
