Oh my :censored_2: :censored_2: :censored_2: !!!!!

I was scouring that site for hours building up a wish list and the only reason I didn't find that myself is because they spelled it with a "ts" instead of a "z". Thank you for pointing out the obvious!

Rainbow has announced a 1/700 Fuyuzuki with PE. Looks promising.

Very, though I wonder why they didn't go the injection plastic route. The new directors look very good as well.

Grrrr! It looks so pretty, but it looks like a late-war model Fuyuzuki.

More new items information has been added on the Rainbow site. Two 1/700 models of Fuyuzuki in 1944 and 1945 fit and five firecontrol system sets in 1/700 and 1/350.

Here are the Fuyuzuki pics, though not really large enough. 1944 and 1945 versions

Man I wish they did a 1/350 scale! I’m wondering if Rainbow will but I doubt it.. I may have to bite the bullet and get the new wave Fuyuzuki and price together random PE sets for it..

It ain't cheap, but Big Blue Boy makes a PE set for the 1/350 Akizuki kits.

One of the older Monochrome 1944 boxings had the additional PE. I would hope that Wave issues a late war PE fret at some point.

Niizuki has been found by the R/V Petrel team. Check out their Facebook page for a short video.
