Navwar WW2 Late War Japanese Starter Set
Another project that I've forced myself to finish off as dark vengeance arrives (which it has, and very good it is too) is my Japanese Late war starter set from Navwar, as usual in 1:3000 scale. The ships have actually been finished for a couple of months, but I just hadn't got around to basing them.
The japanese are very good in victory at sea and benefit hugely from the poor points system as in each of the 5 brackets they can field efficient ships. It also helps that the Yamato class battleships are the most powerful in the game.
As all the Navwar starter sets this one is good value, although I'd have prefered one less carrier and another battleship, but thats just me, I like battleships a lot.
The big boys of the set the Battleships, from left to right the Nagato, The Ise and the Yamato. Although as I already have a Yamato this model has been christened the musashi. The Ise is a fascinating ship that is half battleship and half aircraft carrier!
The set also contains 3 full carriers of various sizes, the Kaiyo, the Shinyo and the Unryu.
On the left we have two Takao heavy cruisers and on the right we have two oyodo class light cruisers.
And finally we have 4 akitsuki class destroyers and 4 kagero class destroyers.
