Gakken pacific war series "I-gou submarine"
Media vison"human topedo kaiten"
Model is based on aoshima,s kit.
To make diorama of departure of team kikusui, I reffered Commemorative photo from the book "human topedo".
All the structure and deck is painted in dark gray.
There must be idification lines on the deck, but it cannnot be seeen due to Kaiten on the aft deck.
muzzle of 25mm twin AAMG is open.
Model 22 rader,s horn is also open.
From the picture can one see a yard on the mast, and there is white long flag of kikusui (emblem of empelor,s army).
Between the white flag, IJN flag is risen.
Mysterous thing is, there are 2 kikusui marks on the command post.
Prop guards are made of photo-etched parts.
