The aircraft carrier Soryu was a force that played a part in the Japanese Navy's MTF at the beginning of the Pacific War. Before the war, a well-balanced Soryu appeared from Fengxiang, Ryujo, Akagi / Kaga, and the accumulated technology and experience. Soryu, which was completed at the Kure Naval Arsenal in 1945, when the situation began to set in the dark clouds, was a ship with a displacement of 15,900 tons, a speed of 34 kt, and a number of 57 aircraft. At the beginning of the war, he participated in the Pearl Harbor operation as a Nagumo Mobile Task Force, and was active in all aspects such as sweeping the British Army to the Indian Ocean. At a short age of weak, he was hit and killed with Akagi and Kaga. During the Battle of Midway, a Type 2 ship detective, which would later become a comet bomb, was installed on a test basis, and a Hinomaru was drawn on the front edge of the flight deck to identify allies as a feature of the appearance. The product is modeled after the beginning of the Pacific War of the Indian Ocean operation from the beginning of the war and the appearance of the Battle of Midway, which was the last participating operation, and is finished in a style with condensed deformed shape features.
Molded parts are composed of colored parts of warship color and ship bottom color.
Since the design is divided into the hull and the bottom, it can be either an offshore type or a full hull type.
- The characteristic parts found in real ships are firmly three-dimensionalized.
-Major ship parts are composed of gray moldings that imitate the color of warships.
-The hull has a one-piece structure that integrates the left and right sides with a slide mold to reproduce the smart shape that is characteristic of medium-sized aircraft carriers. On the side of the side, a three-stage porthole that is reproduced up to the eaves along with the slurries is molded, and the uneven shape of the intake passage etc. is also expressed as an integral part. Reinforcing material is reproduced on the back side of the high-angle turret, and a guide plate is reproduced inside the chimney, so you can enjoy the atmosphere like a scale model.
-The anchors are three-dimensionally shaped with separate parts, and a total of three anchors are available, including one at the stern. In addition, one spare part is included in case of damage. The anchor deck on the bow and the deck floor of the short boat on the stern are densely engraved with a non-slip strip pattern to give a sense of detail. The 12-meter internal fire boat and the 12-meter internal fire lunch are recorded separately for the ship-mounted boat, and the lunch hood is reproduced with a canvas-colored sticker.
-The machine gun seat is a U-shaped integrated part that reduces the time and effort of assembling by combining the left and right rear three sides into one. The machine gun seat has a non-slip strip pattern, and the machine gun of another part is attached with a snap fit (press-fit type). Equipped with 11 25mm twin machine guns, only the rear of two chimneys is shielded to reproduce the features. The 12.7 cm high-angle gun has a base engraved on the turret, and the barrel has a separate part that reproduces the muzzle with a slide mold. The wireless antenna support is movable so that it can be tilted when the ship departs.
