yukikaze destroyer

Hello folks... Here I am again. Back to ships. This time I picked Yukikaze (Snowy wind) from Kartonowy Arsenal. Yukakize was Kagero-class destroyer in service with the Imperial Japanese Navy during World War II. She was the only member of her class to survive the war, and is infamous for doing so nearly unscathed.

Wonder how many people and from where would get it if ship was displayed at a snow-covered dock?

(used to know some IJN DD name translations a few decades back when big in to WW2 naval miniatures gaming. No longer do, though, other than Oboro had something to do do with the moon)

Man, you ain't kidding about a bunch of tiny wires!

Can already see the result will be well worth the effort.

Only model of this I've ever built would have been about an inch and a quarter long cast metal for miniatures gaming - there were no wires!
