Secondhand Mini-ships Anker An31 Japanese super type A cruiser Project 65 of 1942 1/1250
A 1/1250 scale secondhand model of the Japanese Project 65 of 1942 for a super type A cruiser by Anker An31. The model is in very good condition, having been re-painted in a grey which matches Neptun Japanese warship models. See photograph.
The super type A cruiser project was developed to counter the Alaska class being built by the United States. Following the principle that they should out-class the opposition ship for ship, the Japanese intended that Project 65 should have 9x14" guns.
