700th scale Ashigara heavy cruiser.
June 15, 2014 in Ships
I built this about four years ago. I bought the Fujimi kit with etch as a change of pace from aircraft modelling intending it to be a quick build OOB. Err no, I got totally immersed in the subject and scratch built and bought additional etch from Lion Roar and White Ensign.
The splinter shields on the secondary armament were made from tea light cases. The aircraft had clear cockpits made from sprue. The boats were either enhanced with wire or were converted from some German ones I had. The masts were scratch built from brass and the barrels from micro tubes.
Thanks for looking.
