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.

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.

Not "vaporware"; here are shots of Mike's latest test pieces. He's got a little more tweaking to do.


Is this from corsair armada, and is it still available to buy anywhere?

It's embarrassing at how long I've taken to do this. It's getting close to being ready, though.
I had to change the sizes on a couple things, found other parts that needed to be added, had to repair damage to my test build and now have to find a new etcher.

All that's left is boat cradles and instructions and I may have a replacement etcher. Sorry for the delay. Life keeps throwing me curve balls. Needless to say, I don't have a firm release date and price is to be determined.

Just received Fujimi's 1/700 NEXT Akizuki. looks very impressive with the details and the molding sharpness. Some quick pictures to compare with the Fujimi's "normal" offering of the same ship

photo continues. The first thing you will notice when you get the kit is the size of the box. It is the same length as the box for a battleship!!

Thx for posting those NEXT pics, caledonia. Much appreciated.

Detail-wise on the major pieces, the NEXT Akizuki seems to be as or even more sharp than those of the NEXT Kagero/Yugumo kits. The turrets, funnel and bridge look very good from here.

Hi Dan K,

Yes, in my opinion, Fujimi is improving progressively with each NEXT release. The moulding quality/sharpness and the general shape accuracy has gone up another level from their Kagero release a few years back. I am really impressed with the details they mananged to get on the gun turret and the bridge face. Replace with the metal barrel and the turret is ready to go more or less IMHO
