Hasegawa has released an updated 1/700 kit of the Japanese aircraft carrier Akagi. We examine the model.

Great review, Fred, thanks for letting us know. I find IJN carriers fascinating in their complexity of design & execution. This kit looks like a winner.

i agree with you that the aircraft included on the kit is old and not up to the ships standard.
