1/350 IJN CA Takao 1944

Product Description
This item is an injection-plastic ship model kit.   Click here for sizing chart.

Launched in May 1930, the IJN heavy cruiser Takao served throughout the Pacific War, taking part in many campaigns and ending up as a stationary anti-aircraft defense battery after being heavily damaged by US submarines after the Battle of Leyte Gulf in 1944. She was finally used as a target practice ship for the HMS Newfoundland.

Aoshima's much-anticipated original release of the Takao in 1/350 scale was a completely new tooling, sharply molded in gray styrene with a black display stand. This second release is a full-hull model that builds into the Takao as she appeared in 1944. Includes a Type 0 Reconnaissance Floatplane (biplane) and a Type 0 Three-Seat Reconnaissance Floatplane (monoplane). Also includes photo-etched metal detail parts for the main gun turret range finder cover, the stern signal light, and the direction finder antenna. The 16-page instruction booklet is in Japanese and English, with descriptive illustrations. Another great addition to any collection of 1/350 ships!
