Japanese WWII Dreadnought Battleships 1/3000

Seen below some "heavy metal" of the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) in a sheltered anchorage somewhere in the Pacific.

In the fore are the super-dreadnoughts Yamato and Musashi (both wielding 9 x18" guns), behind them Mutsu and Natagto (8 x 16" main armament, the Japanese version of the RN Queen Elizabeth class) and lingering in the distance the Fuso and Yamishiri (12 x 14" broadside).

Again from a different angle. This mass of armoured metal was outmoded by the time of WWII in the Pacific Theatre, where air power was the dominant deciding factor. Still very nice to paint up :)

The rest of the IJN awaits for1941 and the Pacific War scenarios (all the above are Navwar 1/3000 figures).

Footnote: This page amongst all my postings is the most popular by far and away. Is it just being picked up by the search engines for people interested in the Pacific War?

Note to self:

I am slightly surprised at the number of hits this site still receives
