This is a Pitroad 1/700 scale waterline ship kit. The kit gives the option of building either the seaplane carrier or transport version. I'm going with the transport one with a two tone camo scheme which may or may not have been used by this ship. I can't find any records so I will use a scheme that was used by other ships. This kit does have a flaw in that the hull should be 1 or 2 cm longer but it won't affect the fun. Aoshima has released a new kit of this ship with the correct hull size.

I luv this one so far. Transport ships can be so much more interesting and are less often displayed, it makes this one especially cool. Cool too, is the option choice...very cool!
