Japanese Cruiser Yahagi

This is my first original conversion - the Japanese light cruiser Yahagi.  I converted it from a Duca D'aosta, and I based it on a model photo I found online.  Now my Jintsu will have another light cruiser to keep it company.  Smile

Nice work! But is just me or is that deck really red? Smile

That's why I decided to model it.  I found a picture of it with a red deck, and I thought that the idea of a red deck was cool and unique-looking, so I made the model.  Smile

Red...Alpha color. Should help your dice roll better.  Wink

Nice work, man.

Kick ass Razz

Yeah, the Tamiya models of the light cruisers were finished with the Tamiya Rust Color on the deck.  It is a bit on the red side of things.  But for historical accuracy, yeah, they painted their ships a wide range of colors...in addition to the rust red decks, I have seen color photos of olive green ships and decks (for Inland Sea), soft blue for the Korean Coast, dove grey decks with dark green mlotting (spots) for the Java Sea Area, and dark charcoal grey for the Guadalcanal night raids.  The IJN covered the color spectrum for sure... of course so did the USN...anyone see the dark blue and smurf blue battleships of the USN?

Great Job Zieg!
