IJN Cruiser Myoko

  • move
Anthony Kochevar shares with us some images of his IJN Myoko, a heavy cruiser with the Imperial Japanese Navy during World War 2 and scuttled in 1946. This model is finished in her late war camouflage scheme, the ship was a “what if” as at this point in the war as the stern did not exist, having been blown off by a torpedo before this paint scheme was applied. Anthony did not have the heart to model it with this extensive damage. This is Fujimi’s kit with a comprehensive PE set right in the box. Several other generic PE sets and scratch building materials were used to make the model and Finemolds aftermarket sets used for the Type 96 Triple and double barrel AA.

About Anthony Kochevar (ajkochev)
FROM: UTAH, UNITED STATES

I've modeled ships as a teen and started the hobby again in 2005. For some reason I got into the history of the Japanese Navy at this time and started building ships of this navy. I also do N Scale model railroading, reef aquariums and a few video games.

Anthony; superb ship! I am guessing 1/350?

Really impressive. I like the action around the aircraft, with the crew moving around.

A really gorgeous build Anthony, the cloth underneath the model and the rigging indicated 1/700th and that makes the detailing you put in even more remarkable.Top notch work.

Being a member of the same club as Anthony (IPMS-SLC) I get to see his work in person. They are okay. Just kidding! His work is truly inspiring.

One of the more stunning 1/700 builds I have seen... I was sure it was 1/350 when I first saw it: Incredible. My 1/350 Aoshima will look poor in comparison, and it is an excellent kit...¸ Gaston
