Has anyone completed or done any work on the Samek 1/700 Ise 1917 kit or seen any reviews of this kit?

Me ! My only problem was the turrets, they are over scaled. I replaced mine with a old Haseqawa one, but a slight modification will be needed cause they for a '40's fit.

I stumbled an image shared in facebook of IJN Ise wreck in green camouflage

Image

Also after quick search i found this



Interested to convert my ongoing Hyuga build into this camouflage. Is there any other reference on this camo pattern? Does Hyuga got similar camo treatment?

Yes, IJN Hyuga had same camouflage pattern, IJN Haruna too but with stripes instead of patches like the IJN Ise class. IJN Nagato had a camouflage patern too, but quite different.

Here is a GREEN IJN Ise in 1/200 fom the gallery:
http://www.modelshipgallery.com/gallery/bb/ijn/ISE-200-gs/index.htm
Im guessing IJN Hyuga was almost the same just the patches in a slightly different place and shape (?) but not much. The most bizarre camo was IJN Haruna's and is also hard to do correctly in 1/700 too(good luck painting camo on 12,7 cm AA barrels...) !

Nice, thanks! Need some guesstimate for the Hyuga then.

What if scenario, if Japan has no shortage of experienced pilots, planes, and oil; but still in short of carrier due to Midway; does Ise/Hyuga conversion could be successful? Or useful at least?

Also interesting choice for using dazzle lines for the turret on Haruna. Maybe to make the turret looks like patrol boats? Or it is common in japan to use dazzle lines for coastal gun?

Hard to assume, but Yokosuka D4Y Suisei dive bombers was quite successful as dive bombers. Successful = they worked as long fuel and pilots where there, perfect/as they intend too.
Also something that we know for a fact, is that the IJN Ise class AA suit of post 1943 was highly successful and a prototype for battleships AA defense according to "interviews"/inquiries of Imperial Navy staff with IJN Ise and IJN Hyuga captains after the Battle of the Philippine Sea, well all this according to this book by Stanley Sandler :
Battleships: An Illustrated History of their Impact. Weapons and Warfare(2004).
