This is an injection-plastic ship model kit.
One year before its decisive victory in the Battle of Tsushima, the Japanese Navy fought the Battle of Yellow Sea (August 1904), and won a marginal victory against the Russian Fleet, trying to break through the blockade at Port Arthur. The Russian Fleet returned to Port Arthur having lost its flagship, but the Japanese Fleet also suffered heavy losses. Hasegawa has recreated the Mikasa's early appearence with this new model. While it contains much of the same tooling as the previous version ("Battle of Tsushima"), this kit includes additional parts for the "fighting top", with 4.7cm guns for two masts, and ventilators with round air intake covers.
