Navis Neptun 1215 IJNS Soryu, an Aircraft Carrier that was sunk at the Battle of Midway, 1942 1/1250
A 1/1250 scale second-hand model of IJNS Soryu in 1941 by Navis Neptun 1215. This model is in very good original condition and has aircraft on deck, see photograph.
The Japanese Carriers were worked hard in the first few months of the war and Soryu would have looked much the same in the attack on Pearl Harbour as she is modelled here.
Japan returned to the basic Soryu design for her last carriers of WW2 (the Unryus, Neptun 1211) showing the soundness of the original design.Soryu translates to 'Green Dragon'.
