I am surprised there isn't already a thread on this class of ships, after doing a thorough search using the terms "Ping Hai" or "Ning Hai". I am also disappointed that there doesn't seem to be 1/700 models out there of this rarely covered subject.

For those unaware, these two light cruisers were built in Japan in the early 1930s and were the most modern, larger ships of the Republic of China Navy (ROCN) when the war with Japan began in 1937.

The Ping Hai was sunk by IJN bombers on Dec. 23rd, 1937, while her sister Ning Hai only lasted 2 days longer, being sunk on Dec. 25.

Both were later raised and used by the Japanese, with the names Isojima and Yasojima. The former was sunk by a USN submarine in Sept. 1944, while the latter was sunk by USN carrier-based torpedo bombers later that year.

I am guessing you were attempting a scratch-build, not a kit?

It would be nice if you could post pictures of your attempt to scratch-build.

There is a kit of Fairy Kikaku:

But I will ignore this one - because of the quality of the kits by Fairy Kikaku I have - and wait for a kit by OceanMoon (ebay dealer SS-Model).

And there a kits of Ioshima and Yasoshima by Kobu Hiryu:

(I hope that these are the correct links)

Is this based on the Kobu Hiryu hull of the Japanese version? Which plans do you use?

And which are the protected cruisers behind?

I got this week a 1/700 kit of Hai Yung by Oceanmoon (WM03203):
http://www.ebay.com/itm/SS-MODEL-VM03203-1-700-resin-kit-Chinese-Navy-Armour-Deck-Cruiser-Hai-YUNG-/281807004993

Is there a chance that also there will be a kit of Ping Hai/Ning Hai?

Thanks for the pictures Mr.WaWa. 謝謝!

Why didn't you finish it when you started it a couple of years ago? I'd very much like to see you finish it.

Because Oceanmoon had not yet released a Ning Hai kit, I built the Fairy Kikaku kit - one of the worst kits I have ever built:
