Regarding Fujimi 1/500 Nagato is the photo set #112763 the same one that comes in kit #610016?

Hi,
Quick question: what is the difference between aoshimas 1927 nagato and 1933?
Any reason for building both kits?

Thanks!

Henk

Catapult, AA guns, etc. Compare for yourself here:

Is there any historical basis for the paint scheme for this Mutsu at this South Korean site below? And no, I don't speak Korean so I have no idea what the site description says.

hi Haijun watcher

you linked my 700 mutsu.

that mutsu is what if version. if mutsu survived over 1943 she might be anchored at Kure naval port, with nagato.
To avoid US' bombardment, the green-grey camo scheme is used by IJN warships in Kure naval port at 1945

Gmmk11,

Thank you for the quick response. Komsamida!

A very creative approach indeed for the Mutsu kit.

So which green did you use for this paint scheme?

it might be a reflective green in Vallejo acrylic.

I can't remember exactly but pretty sure.

No historical base whatsoever...Mutsu never wore camouflage a day in her life. Interesting scheme, though.

A question for specialist : is the version with serpentine shape funnel of Nagato/Mutsu -before 1930 ?- available at 350 scale ?
If not, is it possible to scratch it (enough visual and technical sources to built it ?).

Thanks for your help. :smallsmile:

Unfortunately, there is no pre-modernized version in 1/350 scale. That would be pretty cool, though.

The plans probably exist in Japanese sources; I'm not aware of any that have been published by Western publishers.

The Lion Roar 1/350 1944 set I am told has actually the exact same content as the "generic" Lion Roar Nagato set, this including the radars... I have the "generic" Lion Roar...

I have a 1941 1/350 Nagato box: What major things do I need to do to have a 1943 Nagato vs a 1941? Is there enough in the Lion Roar set to do a 1943-44 Nagato? Note that I have the 1941 Hasegawa wood deck: How big is the difference of a 1941 deck with say an early or late 1943 wood deck?

Is there some plastic parts missing in the 1941 Hasegawa kit that prevents doing a 1943?

Gaston

Finishing my Fujimi 1/700 IJN Mutsu, and I want to have the float air plane crane in a collapse "mode".
Anyone has a clear picture or a drawing of how the crane looked in the collapse "mode" ?

Thanks in advance.

You can still order it from Hobby Link Japan, it will take actually less than 4weeks for the set to arrive at the shop and then ship it back to you.

I'll look, though if I find one, it may be for another class BB. Have you the Model Art Super Illustrated Nagato volume? There's a simple illustration at the bottom of p.95.

Fuso and Yamashiro have nearly identical crane, boom , and sponson layouts, even if their sponsons were located at the stern. Checkout the AOTS volume on Fuso.

This is the only photo I came up with, cropped from an overhead of Mutsu, circa 1940-41. HTH.

I believe it is the same crane as the ones that folds into a well in the flight deck on shakaku.
