This is an injection-plastic ship model kit.
Tamiya follows up on its fantastic kit of the Mogami with this release of the Mikuma...very similar to the Mogami, but retaining the rear gun turrets rather than having the flight deck added, as was done to the Mogami. Like that great kit, the Mikuma can be built as either a full-hull or a waterline model, and includes parts for the rear armament in place of the flight deck. A display stand is included for the full-hull version. Instructions in Japanese, English, German, and French, with a large full-color painting and marking guide.
