The IJN battleship Haruna was originally built in 1915, then later rebuilt to full battleship standards in 1933. She served throughout the Pacific during WWII, in such operations as the invasion of Malaya in 1941, the conquest of the Dutch East Indies in 1942, the Japanese defeat at Midway in June of 1942, and the battles for Guadalcanal in August of 1942. Later in 1944 she participated in the Battle of the Philippines Sea and the Battle of Leyte Gulf. In early 1945 the Haruna was damaged in Japanese waters by US aircraft, then was sunk shortly after while moored for repairs in Kure, again by US aircraft. She was raised by salvagers after the war and sold for scrap.
Following the success of its fantastic 1/350-scale version, Fujimi now offers this all-new tooling of the IJN battleship Haruna in shelf space friendly 1/700 scale! A waterline model, with metal ballast to help keep it settled flat. Another great addition to the 1/700 IJN fleet!
