All the turrets had metal sheet lagging over the armor to serve as a shield against heat/sun/weathering. The sides had about 65mm air space between the armor and the side plating, the turret tops had about 85mm spacing, which is why you see all those horizontal vent holes along the top of the turret, to let the air flow through.

The ribbing on the outside of the turret are stiffeners or fasteners; I'm actually not sure. They are much smaller than most scale depictions, 20mm wide by 5mm high, which makes me think they are fasteners. Seems too thin to be a stiffener.

HTH.


Hi Dan,

thanks for the info :thumbs_up_1:

Have a nice weekend!

Best wishes
Bernd.

Hi all,

wondering of the construction of Tone´s main battery. Did they have spaced armour plating? The pattern on the side plates... is this stiffening or reinforcements, please?

TIA :wave_1:

I have Miyukikai #144 Tone 1944 at 1:100 in my collection from when I thought I would be building something else after Hood...

Miyukikai removed his prices from his website, but from webarchives I see the latest price for this one was 60EUR, so 70EUR including postage? Includes hazard pay to go to the post office....


Hi,

thanks for checking your archives. I would buy it :thumbs_up_1: If you like you can wait with the shipping when you feel more comfortable with the situation due to corona. :smallsmile:
Payment via PayPal? I send you a PM with my details.

The drawing doesn´t seem to include cross sections or stations of the hull?

Bye,
Bernd.

UPDATE: The stations are in the lower right corner ... :thumbs_up_1:

Sadly, I don't have a set for Tone or Chikuma.


If you haven't already checked out the Miyukikai website, there are some very interesting 3DCG renderings of several ships, including Tone. The Agano class renderings are as recent as January, 2020:

Hi,
to me ist seems that his originals were damaged. That´s a loss! :-(
I asked him if the modeling community could help him. will post when he answers.

Would anyone be willing to sell some TONE plans in 1/200 or 1/100 scale?

Best wishes
Bernd.

To backdate the kit, it is mostly a matter of changing or reducing the number of AA mounts, particularly on the quarterdeck. Also, Tone in late 1944 does not carry a Type 13 radar on her mainmast.

You can compare your kit instructions https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10133275 to those of the 1944 kit: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10098695

Remember to hit "List All Images"

Timmy C, Thank you for the answer.

Then I have a second question: is it difficult to backdate the Tone in 1945 to its design in Oktober 1944.
And what would I have to change?

Many thanks to all!!!

Alex

Flyhawk 700192 is meant for Fujimi kit 410166, which is Tone in October 1944: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10098695

That should explain the discrepancy. Whether Fujimi's count for the number of AA guns is correct is something maybe one of the others can answer.

Hello everyone,

First I like to introduce myself: my name is Alexander, and I'm from Munich in Germany and I have a question for all the experts -as i'm not- on IJN ships in this forum.
I bought Fujimis "Tone 1945" (# 401027) in 1/700 and Flyhawks PE Set (# 700192).
When I compare both instructions, there's a difference: Fujimi tells me, to use eight triple 25mm AA on the aft deck, whereas Flyhawk says to use ten single 25mm and two triple.
Now I Wonder which is right????

Thank you in advance
Alex
