Thanks for a super GB - If lockdown continues I’m going to have to find a ship kit and do a proper build...

 

Thanks for looking,

This is the IJNS Light Cruiser Jintsu, one of the earlier ships in the 1/700 Waterline series from 4 Japanese kit manufacturers, in this case Fujimi. After WWI the IJN built 4 classes of light cruiser with a layout similar to the wartime RN Town and "C" Classes before the various treaty restrictions diverted them towards building the larger 8" armed  Heavy Cruisers, Jintsu was one of 3 ships in the final Sendai Class group of so called 5500 ton cruisers, armed with 7 x 5.5" guns and 8 torpedo tubes.

Originally intended as flotilla leaders for destroyers, from the 2nd group onwards they were made bigger to accommodate a catapult and floatplane, thus enabling them to also act a scouts. 

 

Released in the 1970's these kits were a bit crude by modern standards, particularly those made by Aoshima. The light AA guns have been replaced by somewhat finer ones from a more recent accessories set from Skywave/Pit Road, and I modified it from what appeared to be late pre war configuration to something resembling its appearance when it was part of the escort group for the Midway invasion force, with 2 quad torpedo mountings instead of 4 twins. It was the first 1/700 ship I have built for perhaps 30 years and I rather enjoyed it. I believe another modeller is building the Tamiya kit of the Natori from the previous Nagara class, which will make an interesting comparison. Only the 3 Sendais had 4 funnels, all the others had 3!

 

Cheers

Here's my 1/700 Dragon Ticonderoga class guided missile cruiser USS Normandy. It's a kit that has been in my stash for years, and this group build was a good reason to finally build it. It was my first time building a ship kit properly (that USS George Washington I did as a teen doesn't count), and I really enjoyed it. I will definitely build more ships in the future. Colourcoats were used for the paintjob.
