1/700 IJN Yamashiro : The battle of Surigao Strait
The Japanese battleships Fuso and Yamashiro were attacked and sunk by the U.S. 7th Fleet in the Battle of Surigao Strait, 25 October 1944. Fuso was torpedoed by a U.S. Navy destroyers, and Yamashiro was shot down by U.S. 7th Fleet ships. Yamashiro is the last battleship to sink with the warship fleet’s artillery firing.
I have so far produced several series of Leyte Gulf naval battles. Atago, Fuso and Yamashiro have been completed and will make additional Musashi, USS Johnston dioramas in the future.
With this, I will end my diorama, which is based on the Leyte Battle, and I will start making a diorama based on the Guadalcanal Sea and Pearl Harbor.
