Just arrived in the mail today. A really fine looking kit. . Of course ya'll know me. I'm going to have to modify it. My own fault really. In order to save $10 I got the later version which replaced one of the main rear gun turrets with an AA battery. Only have to cast a main gun turret to fix this, so it is a piece of cake. I think the reason the other kitis much more expensive is becaust they included that bonus Emily. I picked up a PE set for it, but 2 things I liked were in the box. Gold/brass colored propellers and correct scale anchor chain. I sure hope Hasegawa enters the 350 scale market with a bang. They just released their upgraded versions of the Hyuga and Ise in 700. I would do double backflips for 350 scale hybrid BB

I hope they do to just to see you do a back flip.

Bonus points if you end up in traction.

After looking at side view diagrams and reading up on the class, I may just go with what I have. I am sure that most of the parts were included as the kit was released in bth formats from the same manufacturer. The thing is, they removed the rear main gun turret in 43 on the entire class and added a bunch of anti-aircraft fixtures which enhance the power look aspect of the ship.

Oh kenny, I didn't say where I'ld do those back flips, I was thinking in a swimming pool in about 4 feet of water
