1/700 Water Line Series

1/700 SCALE Kiso light cruiser

Length: 230mm. Image shows assembled and painted kit.

The Kuma-class were the representative Japanese Navy light cruisers of the Taisho-era. Completed in 1920, she took part in operations around the Aleutian Islands and the Philippines. This model depicts the ship as she appeared in 1932, with three funnels, 8cm DP guns, and a canvas canopy over the bridge. Degaussing cables and anchors are also sharply recreated. This model would make a great display with other Kuma-class light cruisers.
