The Yonaga, in 1/2000 scale!
« on: June 29, 2011, 03:51:52 pm »
It's small, but it is from my "Furashita's Fleet" collection (IJN Yonaga can be seen at:

http://www.combinedfleet.com/furashita/yonaga_f.htm  )

Now I am thinking of making its battleship counterpart, the Yokozuna ( http://www.combinedfleet.com/furashita/yokozu_f.htm  ), but it may be a while before I get around to THAT.

In the meantime, here is a pic of the port-side-islanded beast (similar to a Japanese "USS Midway" with pre-war design technology--more like a super-Akagi). A "Misago" (recent 1/72 whiffed "twin-engined Zero") is "taking off". IJN Shokaku (RW) is the other carrier in the pic, and the pocket battleship "Chichibu" is in the lower left.

My mind is like a compost heap: both "fertile" and "rotten"!
