This thread is for the IJN Minesweeper. As there are some kits aproching I started this thread.

    Wa-1 auxialliary Minesweeper class: Wa-1 to Wa-22

    • Five Star W-13 class

No problem Dan, I had some questions and it is better here.
I'm building Five Stars W-13 kit, but not sure which ship. I had some questions, but found the answer by myself.
The kit is as the minesweeper where after the rebuild with the lower bridge. It cames without degausing cable.
I only know pics of prewar ships with the numbers on and no degausing cable. But it is nearly save to say they were refitted.
So I'm building the kit as a prewar ship with some numbers attached. A good change from the usual grey ships.
Till know now I had no problems and beside the degausing cable the kit includes everything you need to build the ship. In some kits the cutters are missing, but not here.

Greetings Christian
