1:700 IJN Heavy Cruiser Kako - Full Hull Special
Fortune is fickle. The morning after participating in a crushing victory over US surface vessels in which four cruisers and two destroyers were reported sunk, Kako was spotted by S-44-an American submarine-which fired upon Kako at 7 in the morning. She was struck three times with torpedoes at 7:08. She rolled, her boilers exploded, and by 7:15 she had sunk beneath the waves. Despite her precipitous departure from the surface, most of her officers and crew were able to escape to the safety of other nearby Japanese warships.
