IJN TAKAO Japanese Heavy Cruiser

Hello folks... Welcome again.... Here it is my new project Japanese Heavy Cruiser IJN TAKAO (1944) The Takao class was a class of four heavy cruisers of the Imperial Japanese Navy launched between May 1930 and April 1931.
They were an evolution from the preceding Myoko class, with heavier torpedo armamanent and had an almost battleship-like, large bridge structure. Their main gun armament was ten 8-inch (203 mm) guns in twin mounts and they were also armed with sixteen 24 inch torpedoes (carrying more than the Myokos or Mogamis), making the Takaos the most heavily armed cruisers of the IJN. The only flaw was that they were considered top-heavy and thus prone to capsizing, while Turret #3 had a poor firing arc. These two problems were rectified in the follow-up Mogamis; nonetheless the Takaos were considered the best cruisers that the IJN ever built. My model is from Kartonowy Arsenal published in 2020. It contains color 14 pages A3 with parts and 6 pages with all support parts with gread 3d pictures.

I think this is a reissue, hopefully it's been enhanced. Should be a beautiful model when done.

Capon is kind like base for varnish... it prevents paper from breaking or loosing color ..I apply this as paper protection and also improves plasticity of a papier ... it is not water based ..... it is hard to see it after it dries ....
