Site Sponsors, Partners and other Links
The Internet is full of information; if you have the time to look
for it! If you need any more information on the Imperial Japanese
Navy ships, aircraft, modeling etc, etc, and don't have the time,
peruse the list below!
Supplying us with a model
each month for review puts Hobby Link Japan in our "Sponsors" category.
I have purchased from Hobby Link Japan and found the selection,
service, prices AND delivery time excellent. They have recently
posted a stream-lined customer account section allowing you to print
your old order invoices and track the progress of your current orders.
Check out the site and I'll let you be the judge.
us with a photo-etch set each month for the kit sent by Hobby Link
Japan, Tom's Modelworks is the newest member of J-Ships sponsors!
With products found at any reputable hobby shop, Tom has made a
name for himself as a producer of quality products that extends
much further than photo-etched sets.
Check out the site and view his selection of all things models.
Partners are sites that
share information with us, share a common interest or support our
site in another way.
J-Aircraft.com: Dave Pluth and I had tossed around the idea of a j-ships.com
site for a few months and I finally put my money where my mouth was
and got to work. From the "Ship and Navy" board on his site I realized
the large number of surfers looking for information on modeling and
Japanese ships. It was for this reason that the idea of j-ships.com
came to fruition.
Combinedfleet.com: Jon Parshall and his crew have put together THE
English language site on the IJN. This was the first and only site
I frequented for any and all information on Japanese ships. From TROMs
(Tabular Records of Movement) for most ships to battleship comparisons
for all navies during WWII Jon has done well.
ModelWarships.com: Timothy Dike has had an "All navy" modeling site
up for all to see for as long as I can remember. He, and his crew,
have interesting articles on all types of subjects, reviews and in
progress walk-thru's on building several ship models.
http://www.h3.dion.ne.jp/~mokei/e-home.htm: Omami (H. Murai) has put together
THE MOST SICKENING DISPLAY OF RAW MODELING TALENT on the Net
to date!!! His models and techniques are displayed on our site and
warship.get.net.pl: Jarek has put together a site dedicated to putting
as much information about ship specifications as possible. His Japanese
section is probably the largest and most complete on his site. Our
spec sheets are great for quick reference, but Jareks' are detailed
down to schematics on each classes armor schemes!
Another great Japanese site dedicated to "Extreme" model
ship building. T.Kimoto has dedicated many hours to researching,
building and expanding his web site.
Bill Giordano has started up a web based model retail company here
in North America. Check out his site for some great deals on all
things not just IJN related.
Parry's IJN Camouflage site. If you're looking for some well
researched, late war, IJN carrier camo, look no further. Allan has
put several documents on the schemes and ideas of the late war camouflage
patterns of the IJN into electronic format for you to use!
