1/350 YKM-35072 Yankee Modelworks IJN Tone 1944 Heavy Cruiser
Resin Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc++
Yankee Modelworks 1/350 were advertised as the World's Finest 1/350 Ship Kits, and that was no idle boast. All resin parts are cast from de-aired molds in a pressure chamber - ensuring that every detail is sharp and there is zero to few air bubbles. Careful design of the molds also nearly eliminated resin flash. The cast metal fine details are stunning and it can be built full hull or waterline. The Yankee IJN Tone is rightly considered by many to be superior to the injection molded version for many reasons. First, resin holds much finer and sharper detail than what is possible with injection molded. Second, cast metal details are superior to injection molded plastic also. Third, this kit is already super-detailed with four brass photoetched sheets - two large and two medium size. Add to this the superb step-by-step text instructions with illustrations at every step and you have a fantastic kit. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.
