1/700 IJN Isuzu (Tamiya)
Relatively simple build of the older Tamiya kit, with a few additions:
- Tom's Modelworks photo-etch railings, crane, ladders, Type 21 radar and searchlight tower (which is a part for a Japanese heavy cruiser cut down to fit)
- PitRoad triple and single 25mm AA guns
- Masts are brass rod
The canvas dodger around the searchlight platform is white glue. The model is painted with White Ensign's Yokosuka Grey paint. Rigging is a combination of Caenis line and Dai-Riki line.
