1/350 scale I-400 of the Imperial Japanese Navy 'cut away'.

There was a kit from Tamiya of the I-400 that featured a transparent section allowing you to see the three float planed in the hangar. But as that model is impossible to get, I decided to do my version of what is stored in the hangar.

Nice work Kerry. Opening up the aircraft hangar is a nice touch along with the wooden decking, but the icing on the cake is the shaping and installation of all the hand-rails and overhead aerial wiring. I attempted something similar earlier this year on a larger 1/144 scale build of a Type VIIC, but it turned out to be a total shite-show as my hand/eye coordination wasn't up to the task, which makes this work even more impressive 👍

Most impressive detail work Kerry 👍
That look inside the Hangar is a fantastic gimmick. Very well implemented Sir!! Congrats 👍

I had a lot of fun painting the 'Rising Sun' on the base too. 🙂 👍
This is my third I-400 and my last. But I did have a great time shooting for a result I can be happy with.
Thank you both for your most welcome and positive comments. 👍 😉

The drills I used here are from this company in japan.

Submarine kits in 1:350 can be weird. The WW2 stuff can be tiny, while the modern submarines models in the same scale can be rather large.

Q: How long is this Japanese submarine in 1:350?

This is a very cool build of a most interesting class of sub. Very nicely done Kerry!

The rust will have to be very subtle, as they were not in service for very long before they were captured by the US navy. . But it will appear. 🙂

Really nice 👍
Looks very practical: if you don't feel like seasickness anymore, you just get the plane out of the garage and do a few laps.

Great way of looking at getting out of a sardine can for a while. 🙂 🙂 🙂

Wow! Fantastic work Kezz! So many lessons for me in one build. The insulators look 100% perfect. Incredible work on the PE too. Great idea with the railing preparation as well. Kudos to Yoda!
