1/700 IJN CA Takao "1942 Indian Ocean OP"

by Aoshima
$15.73 USD $19.66 USD


This is an injection-plastic ship model kit.

All-new retooling of the IJN's 13,400 ton CA from the Second World War. A vast improvement from the previous version of the kit. Takao was torpedoed by the US Submarine Darter in October 1944 and nearly sunk. She was towed to Singapore where she finished the war as anti-air gun platform. Hit again by a British midget submarine in July of 1945, she was immobilized, and eventually scuttled by the British in the fall of 1946.

This kit depicts her as she appeared during part of the Indian Ocean campaign.
