Shizuoka 2015 #8
And here’s the last post with some of the most interesting models and dioramas I saw in the show. Note the really funny mini sub dio with the faucet.
The extremely interesting and original warship creations by ARS NOVA are based on a manga and animation series (or the opposite).
The insects, fish and other models were created by “Craft Factory Shovel Head” and they are always a surprise and pleasure to see.
The “Sweet Home” diorama was my most favorite. It was built by Matsumoto Morio and was featured in the April issue of the magazine “Armour Modelling”. It is based on a heavily modified 1/35 Fine Molds Type 95 Light Tank “Ha-Go” to create an experimental Type 4 Self-propelled 12mm Cannon “Ho-To”. The house was all scratch built.
Again thank you for the comments and the space. There were 8,000 models from 256 model clubs from all around Japan with thousands of visitors crowding the place so quite difficult to take photos and spot the best models. I have an aversion for jet planes and modern armour so sorry for not including any of them. I promise next year to take more photos of better quality.
Don’t forget to visit our blog for photos of Japanese aircraft models from the show:
