1:200 IJN Mikasa - Wave Models
Posted by edidimus on Saturday, November 03, 2018 12:19 PM

This is the 1:200 IJN Mikasa by Wave Models. It's a work in progress with the torpedo net booms, gun port doors, national flags, and assorted details remaining to be done.

That’s a really nice looking model so far. I’m not familiar with Wave models so I can’t compare it to Hobby Boss’ version or Hasegawa’s 1/350 rendition. I’d love to see more pictures of this beauty.

I can't seem to figure out how to post my model pictures.Sad

The Wave Model version of the 1:200 Mikasa is a 1905 version. Wave Models, Trumpeter, and Hobby Boss are the same kit with perhaps a slightly different deck (I'm not sure on this part) to allow for different year variations of this ship. However, it should be noted that other parts required to backdate the Mikasa were also included on the parts sprues.

My model uses the Pontos update set to detail the ship. This set included a wooden deck, lots of photo etch, cast resin, and machined brass parts. A very extensive and worthwhile set IMHO.
