Awesome, this IJN engineering: You gotta respect it! How to keep a plane dry 100ft under water!
I agree with you!!

Great looking sub. The weathering is very realistic.

A gentleman I once knew, Steve Horn, wrote an excellent book on Japanese long-range attacks during WWII, called ‘The Second Attack on Pearl Harbor: Operation K And Other Japanese Attempts to Bomb America in World War II’. Steve had an historic career of his own, having been in the US Navy bound for the impending invasion of Japan when the atomic bombs were used. After leaving the Navy he enlisted in the USAF, eventually flying B-47s, and then B-52s during Linebacker. He even spent time in a missile launch silo during the Cuban Missile Crisis. none of that is in the book, of course, but there’s a chapter about the I-400s in there that is quite fascinating.
Very interesting!!!! 😜

Fantastic weathering. You don’t often see a full hull model weathered on a stand, and done so well.

Very nice build of one of the IJN’s must unusual projects!

Really impressive approach to weathering, Carlo – very realistic in my view. The I-400 looks best beaten up and you have perfected the look of the great ocean-going beast expertly. Fine work on the miniature airplanes as well. It is hard at this scale to achieve such realism.
