H.I.J.M.S. Natori by Jason Abraham

Ship Name: Natori
Model manufacturer: Tamiya
Scale: 1/700
Date Commissioned: May 1997 (approx)
Extras (Photo-etched etc): Railings
Any parts rebuilt: none
Manhours from beginning to end (this is approximately, of course): 15
Currently on display: My house
Modellers rating: 7
Special notes: My first attempt to use photo etched parts and they were a royal pain in the wahzoo! Attaching and painting them made for frazzled nerves and short fuses being blown :)
To top it off I moved twice since I built her and the metal parts have "dog-earred". One day I'll take the Natori and the Ise and completely rebuild them... one day...
