Seishu Maru

1/700 Seishu Maru (5Starmodel)

This is my model of the japanese crane ship Seishu Maru. It was built for transporting turrets from decomissed battleship to there new use as coastal defense. After the war it was shortly used in Hongkong for unloading 160 t locomotives from an american frighter.

The kit is from 5Starmodel and I build it mainly out of the box. For depcting the unloading scene I used trains and Building from Alliance Modelworks. The vehicles were from L'Arsenal.

It was a great fun Project.
