IJN Shoho

1/700 IJN Shoho at Coral Sea (Hasegawa)

This is my IJN carrier Shoho. The kit is from Hasegawa and shows the ship at the time of the Battle of the Coral Sea when she was lost as the first carrier in the pacific war. I have used for my kit the Lion Roar 25mm guns, the 12,7cm guns, the flightdeck nettings and several more details from LionRoar or scratch. The main upgrade was the JoeWorls PE flightdeck instead of the plasticdeck. The Zeros and Kates are from LionRoar early war set. They are real amazing little kits.
