These little kits have become kind of a guilty pleasure for me. The local Japanese market by my place stocks them from time to time and while the small parts can be frustrating with my pudgy fingers I still have fun putting these little guys together. the size and because they are marketed more of as toys then models means that some of the finish on them is not the best but for the price I cant complain.
I've been wanting to post something on these for a while but didn't want to make a thread for each kit so i figured I'd just make one topic and update it whenever I finish one, as I have a few still sitting in my stash.
If anyone else has built any of these fell free to share them
First up is the most recent one I have completed from their Japanese Working Ships Collection vol .4
The JDS Kumisaki amphibious landing ship in 1/1250 scale in waterline style. There are full hull versions of each ship as well in the collection called the A type but as these are blind boxes its the luck of the draw but each A and B type of the 5 ships in the series are mostly the same other then some of the extras.
In this case the Extras for the Kumisaki are the two hovercrafts and the dock, as opposed to the type A who's extras would have been a display stand and a set of Osprey's to display on the deck.
