1:700 Japanese Navy Light Cruiser Tatsuta

Tatsuta and her sister ship Tenryu were tough Japanese light cruisers commissioned just after the first world war and used in WWII. Tatsuta followed Tenryu into the Second Sino-Japanese war then, during WWII, fought at Wake Island, off Guadalcanal, and extensively in the waters around New Guinea before catching a torpedo from USS Sand Lance in 1944. The vessels of the Tenryu class were new designs intended to lead destroyer flotillas. Long, thin, and fast for cruisers, their only flaws were in their light armament.

Kit features two sets of decals.

Decal Options:

I.J.N. July, 1942 (after anti-aircraft weapons are increased)

I.J.N. December, 1941 (the outbreak of war)
