Finally !!! - 1/700 IJN Kinugasa Extreme Detailing Set (for Hasegawa kit) is almost ready. After validation now developing safe packaging...
We do have something to pack:

- 2 large resin waffles with ca 200 pcs
- complete set of barrels (203mm, 120mm) plus 610mm torpedo bodies :)
- complete se of low caliber AA guns and ammo boxes

Holy cow that is one awesome looking set! Will it work for the other Furutaka class cruisers? My guess would be yes but wanted to check since I have the Aoba in my stash :heh:

I admit that this was the same, very first thought that crossed my mind. I had to laugh.

But, your stuff is crazy good. As is your Kinugasa. Well done. :thumbs_up_1: :thumbs_up_1: :thumbs_up_1:

Consider this ordered (when I get some Cryptocurrency sold).

I already have a set of the Rainbow PE.

But the other Greeblies look to be especially attractive.

Now to hope something similar happens for Aoba, Furutaka, and Kako.

Although most of these parts would work for those ships. The bridges were only slightly different, and the Furutaka/Kako had the different skinny-stack. But aircraft handling, guns, and torpedo handling areas were almost identical.

I think the deck vents are different... But that would be pretty easy to detail with the vents you provide.

This is agonizing... Beautiful and Agonizing.

Aoba at '45 has been added to the set. Its separate 9x14cm fret which covers all differences (main bridge has been redesigned, mast, midship part, AA sockets, others)

looks like this set will come out with 4 frets and 3 large resing waffles ...
