Item No:31407

1/700 Water Line Series

1/700 SCALE Hibiki destroyer

Length: 157mm. Image shows assembled and painted kit.

This is an assembly kit of the Hibiki, which was commissioned in 1933 and survived the war after taking part in numerous battles such as the invasions of Malaya and Kiska and the Battle of the Philippine Sea. The narrow fore funnel and other features unique to the Type III "Special Type" destroyers are accurately reproduced, as are the many triple 25mm AA guns that were added from 1944. This model would make for a great comparison with her fellow Type III sister ship Akatsuki or earlier Fubuki-class destroyers such as the Fubuki or Ayanami.
