Kongo, meaning indestructible, was the Imperial Japanese Navy's first super-dreadnought type battlecruiser, and the name-ship of her class, which also included the Hiei, Kirishima, and Haruna. She was upgraded to a battleship rating in the 1930s and served in several major naval operations during World War II before being sunk by enemy action in 1944. This modeling guide provides a lavishly illustrated history of this impressive warship with numerous close-up and panoramic shots based on actual technical drawings. About the Series This brand-new series focuses on the construction of famous ships- battleships, carriers, cruisers, and submarines. With groundbreaking 3D imagery, each corner, angle, and dimension of the ship is viewable. With various close-up views, and each 3D image based on actual technical scale drawings and photographs, this is an exceptional reference tool. Information on the design, development and combat history of each vessel is also included, as well as numerous photographs and 1/350th scale drawings.


"Anyone modeling the Kongo will find this very helpful. not only for the provision of first class reference drawings of specific details, but the color guide for anyone painting their model will like this as some detailed guidance to follow."
