Tamiya 1/350 Japanese Navy Submarine I-400 Model Kit
Model Number: 78019
The Tamiya 1/350 Japanese Navy Submarine I-400 is a plastic model kit in the Tamiya 1/350 Ship Plastic Model Kits range. This plastic Ship kit requires paint and glue to complete.
Created as part of a plan to attack major cities in the United States and the Panama Canal, the three I-400 class large aircraft carrier submarines were quite technologically advanced. Featuring an extremely long range and heavily armed with both torpedoes and deck guns, they were also equipped with catapults to launch their three Aichi M6A Seiran aircraft. While on their way to attack the Panama Canal, the submarines were ordered to attack the Allied naval base at Ulithi instead. However, hostilities ended before any attack could be launched. After surrendering to US forces, the I-400 was eventually sailed to Hawaii, where they were studied and then scuttled.

Excellent model as always from Tamiya. Same scale as many of their ships of the line so a direct comparison can be made. Very highly detailed and it arrived before due date. Great purchase.
