Nice. So, that makes each one 90mm/3.5" long?

hi, Dan. Regarding the length of it,it was impossible to confirm on her documents that the torp- tubes and reloaders were upgarded to the use of long lancers. I think the layout of the torp. compartment remains the same as when commissoned.This would mean Chokai carried type-90 short-bodied ,normal type of torpedoes from birth til the end.

mucho,

A very good point. To be honest, I just assumed they would be Type 93 torpedoes. But, upon rereading the entries for her in the L&W book, it seems like she never gained the mods required to carry the Type 93 torpedo.

Looks like Flyhawk has released a new detail set for the Fujimi Takao:

Looking at the pics, one wonders whether there is much of the original Fujimi set still needed :scratch:
