1/700 MKs-J004 Modelkrak Japanese Battleship Yashima
Resin Model Kit, Box Condition: VG
Finely cast resin waterline model that includes illustrated directions. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes instructions. Yashima was built in Great Britain and participated in the early stages of the Russo-Japanese War of 1904-1905, including the Battle of Port Arthur on the second day of hostilities. Yashima was active in other operations until she hit two mines off Port Arthur in may of 1904. She did not sink immediately but capsized while being towed later that day. Today there is a beautiful, very large scale model of her in the British National Maritime Museum.
