  • 1/700 Shimakaze Information

    Tamiya is delighted to announce a new product in the comprehensive Water Line Series. The Shimakaze destroyer was originally released as a kit in 1982, some 45 years ago, but this completely newly-designed kit uses up-to-date documents to re-capture her with superb accuracy. The Shimakaze was a destroyer that once could boast of being one of the fastest on the seas at 40.9 knots, thanks to 75,000hp from her steam turbines. Her quintuple torpedo launchers were designed especially for her. While 16 ships were originally planned for her class, she ended up the only one of her kind. She was commissioned on 10th May 1943 and served across the theatre of conflict until she was sunk in an attack by U.S. aircraft in the Battle of Ormoc Bay, November 1944.

    About this model:

    • This is a 1/700 scale plastic model assembly kit. Length: 185mm.
    • The Shimakaze is depicted as she appeared in the Battle of the Philippine Sea in June 1944.
    • Her slimline form, designed for speed, is accurately depicted in 1/700.
    • The hull is composed of left and right halves, with seperate parts used to recreate the upper deck, which features realistic depictions of anti-slip surfaces.
    • Quintuple torpedo launchers and 12.7cm gun turrets are assembled using poly caps, allowing rotation.
    • Main mast and bridge parts feature finely-detailed moulding.

    Contains:

    • 1x Shimakaze Japanese Navy Destroyer

    Please note: Model is supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required.
