IJN Light Cruiser Agano

Eduard 1:350


Having reviewed the Eduard etched sets for the IJN light cruiser Agano HERE last October; it was a bit of a surprise to have this Big Ed set land at BM Towers. Containing both the ships set and the railing set Eduard have also included two identical sets of IJN crewmen Eduard indicate that this set is cheaper than buying the sets separately. That certainly appears true when looking on the Eduard website, but it would have been nice to have two different sets of crewmen, which follow the standard format of being self adhesive and when the two halves of each crewman are folded together they still appear slightly skinny. As has been suggested before by members you could use a dab of white glue or even paint to give them a fully profile. The etch is up to the standard we have come to expect from Eduard and are indeed a very useful asset in the absence of the proprietary sets from Hasegawa which are increasingly difficult to find and are rather expensive, particularly compared with the Eduard offering. The Eduard sets are not as comprehensive and the brass appears to be a little thinner than that used in the Hasegawa sets but the detail is still amazing and will look great when added to the model



A surprise arrival, but will be of great benefit to the modeller of the Agano or either of its two sisters, Yahagi and Noshiro, both of which have been released by Hasegawa. The crewmen will bring some life and interest to a seascape which is where they are best used in my opinion. Highly recommended.
