OK, folks, let's see your Soryu, Zuikaku, Unryu, Junyo, Shinano, models.

Akagi, Kaga, Shokaku, Hiryu and Taiho have their own thread.

Above are screen captures from the disc set titled Naval Vessels Collection of the Imperial Japan and show the flight deck markings these two carriers had late 1941 into 1942. Shokaku had a katakana "Shi" painted on the forward port side; Zuikaku had a katakana "Su" in the same position. Other IJN carrier flight ops in the archive footage does not reveal what other carriers had.

Plenty of IJN carrier footage in this set. :cool_2:

A few more images from the discs. The top is of Akagi; the other is of a 25mm gun firing from the deck of a carrier not identified in the narration. HF radio antennas are lowered in preparation for flight ops in the third screencap.

The second & third images are of a Shokaku class, probably Zuikaku, mid 1944. IIRC, it's during training in the Inland Sea. Those are very clear frame images, by the way.

Actually, it's probably Shokaku. Zuikaku had a searchlight platform on her mainmast, which should be visible in the photo. Shokaku did not.

I couldn`t find any website, telephone, or address information on the DVD cases. You might try "googling" the discs` title.

Each disc was 5250 yen or some $50USD. I`ll try some searches and see what turns up.

In the meantime:

Plenty of cruiser, battleship, destroyer and submarine pics!

I posted a question at the Japanese Ships & Navy Message Board, perhaps someone knows...

EDIT: They do! This is a reply I received from one of their members

Quote:
If you go to Amazon's Japanese site (http://www.amazon.co.jp) and search for the following string

日本海軍艦艇集

in DVDs (use cut & paste), then both DVDs will turn up for sale at 5,250 yen each.

I just ran a search, and they both turned up. Searching in English usually won't turn up anything (unless the original is in English), even if there is an English title on the cover.


They are here:

http://www.amazon.co.jp/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000A6K8A6/250-5154473-5051427?%5Fencoding=UTF8

http://www.amazon.co.jp/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000A6K8AG/250-5154473-5051427?%5Fencoding=UTF8

If you need to register, press the help button at the top of the screen. Here you can find your way through Japanese ordering and change some language settings. I ordered them, see what happens.

Good work!

I cannot overstate the wealth of totally cool footage on these discs. Includes naval reviews and maneuvers of the 1930s, December 8th aboard Kido Butai carriers, life aboard ships, a Naval parade through Tokyo`s Ginza district (1920`s) and some good ole` down home wartime propoganda!

IJN fans - Good luck!

G.A.

I can also recommend this book: Diamond Sha's "IJN Warship Album Aircraft Carrier & Sea Plane Tender "

Image

(Picture stolen from http://www.ijn.dreamhost.com/)

Only a few pictures of the carriers or tenders each, so not a really about a single class. The beaty of this book is that the photographs are both printed full page as well as in excellent quality. The printing outperforms all other IJN books I have (Kojinsha, Gakken). I suspect the pics have been tweaked a bit, but who cares. For example, it has two excellent pics of Chiyoda/Chitose, showing all details. They also have 4 other volumes. Available at hobby link japan.

If you receive the DVDs and have trouble playing them, if you have an X-Box, try running them on that.

Are the DVD's region 3 or region-free? I can always just hack my computer player to make it a region-free player for caps but it would be nice to play it on the TV.

On the back, MPEG-2 is written as well as a small drawing of a globe with a "2" in the middle with NTSC next to the globe - me thinks this must mean region 2? :scratch:

OK, several responses here:

1) Ryujo looks nice, keep it up.

2) Photo doesn't post on my screen; don't know why. Her TROM is not enlightening and I can't say for certain. She may have only conducted flight ops testing in order to be considered operational.

3) Hasegawa Shoho is correct for AA. THere may be extra parts on the sprue that are meant for the Zuiho version.
