1700
1/700 IJN Yahagi

  • move
Who says a kit needs to be new in order to end up with a fantastic build? Anthony Kochevar shows off his 1/700 Tamiya IJN Yahagi he built. Reportedly this is a very old kit! But with a small amount of scratch building and a few additions from SS-Models and a few other smaller photo etch offerings form the land of Ebay, Anthony has brought this model right into the playing field with some newer releases.

About the Author

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.

Let me be the first to say "awestruck".

Wow! Stunning work. I have this kit to build and I'll be happy with a result half as good as that. Are the aircraft canopies etch?

This is a stunning showing of what can be done with and old kit and a few bobbles off of ebay. Stephen, it looks that way, there is a good shot of the PE in picture #4!

Thank you everyone. Yes the canopies are etch from a Lion Roar IJN Plane set.

Simply incredible, Anthony. I can't imagine how you managed the signal flags.
