This is an injection-plastic ship model kit.
From the Hasegawa website:
Sub-surface security and surface superiority. DDG-177 Atago is currently in service with the JMSDF. She is an able ship, equipped with anti-ship cruise missiles, sophisticated detection and ranging equipment, and crewed by expert sailors. The ship is loaded with a bevy of various missiles-anti-ship, anti-submarine, and anti-air missiles are all carried as well as a host of torpedoes, point-defense 20mm Gatling cannons, a standard five-inch gun and even an onboard helicopter. Though it has never participated in a conflict, there can be no doubt that Atago would acquit itself well under any circumstances. Kit features full decals.
Decal Option: J.M.S.D.F. Guided Missile Destroyer ATAGO Code: 177
Parts come molded in gray.
