Tamiya 1/350 Yukikaze

Always keen to add a string or two to my bow, I have recently been seeking warship commissions and this one fell into my lap just at the right moment. A change is as good as a rest, as they say, and I must agree that building this little beauty has re-invigorated my modelling mojo no end.

The kit itself is pure Tamiya excellence, the fit and detailing is exemplary. However as any of you who are in to this field of modelling will know, in these scales injection moulding juts doesn't quite provide the level of detail required to build a truly spectacular model. And so to the base kit were added the brilliant Infini Model photo etch and brass set, and one or two other extras to really lift things. To someone used to working in aviation scales, the photo etch parts in this scale really do test your eyesight and tweezers but it is worth it, I hope you agree, this results in a truly awesome model.
