Hasegawa vs Tamiya Yukikaze
Posted by Viper101 on Tuesday, April 21, 2020 12:51 PM

Hi All, 


After finishing my Tamiya Mustang (a while ago!), and getting to work on Revell's 1/72 Saab Gripen, I found that my modeling itch required a ship build. 

While I'd love to build something like Mikuma or Yamato, I don't have the space yet to display those. 

So I'd like to hear what you all think: Which is the better Yukikaze: Tamiya or Hasegawa? Specifically 1/350 scale. I've read reviews of both, and if previous Tamiya building experience is anything to go off of, the Tam kit would almost build itself. I don't have any experience with Hasegawa, and their kit is slightly cheaper. 

I will be picking one of the kits up per your suggestions, and look forward to sharing my progress with you all on the forums when I get around to it. 


Thanks, Alex

Edit: Spelling.

Accuracy I don't know about,but I built the Hasegawa version years ago and it built up as smooth as any Tamiya kit I have built.I would say its probably a coin flip

I just realized this was posted in the "Space" forum....


That being said, thanks for the reply! I may take this over to the ships section, as that's the actual correct sub forum.
