Building The Fujimi 1/350 IJN Kongo, Part 2

Summary…

Highs: Important subject, small deck items molded separately, includes metal barrels for main guns, and a comprehensive flag sheet.

Lows: Incorrect casemate shapes, poor fit in many places, multi piece deck, poor engineering in some areas, simplistic 25mm guns.

Verdict: A stunner when complete, but only after spending a lot of unnecessary extra time.

Overall Rating: 70%

Special thanks to DML USA for the review sample of the base kit and to MSW Managing Editor, Mark Smith, for setting this project up!
