Imperial Japanese Ships of the Second World War

This page is still under construction! Please check back soon! I had originally imagined that as a model was submitted I would do a small class spec sheet la Jeff Donahoo approached me with his volumes of information on each class and each ship in each class and I was swayed into providing more detail.

I began placing each spec sheet in each models page, but came to realise that when two of the same model (or multiple ships in the same class) were submited I was placing A LOT of redundante material on the site. So I decided to park the spec sheets here with one REALLY nice model to portray each and then place links on each model to its respective spec sheet and vice versa. Does this make sense to anyone...? Well, I understand and I guess that's what counts!

You just continue surfing and enjoy the site!
