Tamiya 31428 MATSU DESTROYER 1:700

TamiyaSKU: TAM00031428


To make up for increasing destroyer losses during WWII, the Japanese Navy
created the "Tei Type" destroyers which featured simplified construction. The
first ship of this class was the Matsu, which was completed in April 1944. To
reduce construction time and save materials, the hull and bridge design
consisted of simple straight edges and surfaces. This model accurately reflects
the unique features of the "Tei Type" destroyers, including the 2nd funnel which
was offset to the right. The main turrets and large numbers of 25mm
anti-aircraft guns fitted during the end of the war are also highly detailed and
portray the desperate fight against U.S. air superiority.
