More or less by chance I got a kit of the Akagi here - even worse, a friend wanted it too and didnt buy it, so he didnt need his Lion Roar PE set for her anymore. So, I got the PE set too for a very handsome price (checked ebay, it costs about three times more there).
Most probably, I wont use all of it, for example the Hasegawa flight deck is very well executed in the kit. But nothing beats PE ladders, railings and such stuff.
I had a look at MrVersatiles build, and lerned something about the rigging and creating water effects. Of course this wont be a two-week-project but most challenging. And thats what its meant for me: the challenge!
And off we go... BANZAI!

Off to a good start Lucas! Funny thing about the Akagi...at one point in her life she had more than one flight deck and aircraft could be launched off the different decks simultaneously through that opening in the bow. I bet that made life really interesting for those pilots.
