Unfortunately, I don't know, nor does FlyHawk post the information online. The Hiyos had taller masts, so I can tell you from a visual inspection that it is not FlyHawk set #3, or set #1, which is for some of the less standard masts.

I heard back from Flyhawk, unfortunately this is the response i received about the 1/350 Hasegawa Junyo.

"thanks for your inform. I checked our product, no one fit Junyo. hope you can find it in the near future."

Thx for the follow-up, Brian. It's sort of a shame they didn't give you a listing.

While not exactly a reliable source, the Fine Molds 1/700 AM-31 set, which is their CV mast set #1 of 4, has masts which they say are sized for Kaga, Ryujo, Hiyo/Junyo, and Taiho. I bring this up because it always seemed to me that FlyHawk basically copied the FM sets and enlarged them. My two cents.

I guess im just going to buy a set that looks similar to the Junyo configuration. Truthfully, i doubt anyone would notice the diffrrence. I just wish flyhawk would label their products by application. As a side note, you have any idea which of their mast sets is for Akagi in 350? Thanks

The height of the complete radio mast (latticework base plus mast and yardarm top) in the Junyo/Hiyo kit is 40.5mm. Perhaps someone who owns Flyhawk set(s) 350137, 350138 or 350139 could measure their versions and post the findings.

Akagi's masts were notably different, being one tall mast and yardarm support by a single lattice frame. FH set 350140 appears to match that.
