TD Japanese Pre-Dreadnoughts: The Cruisers


ABJ8 Tsushima
ABJ9 Suma
ABJ7 Asama
ABJ5 Idzumo


A second instalment of photos of the unassembled, what you see is what you get, Tumbling Dice 1/2400th scale pre-dreadnought era Japanese warships. This time I have some pictures of some of the armoured cruisers and light or protected cruisers. I've dropped the central superstructure section into some of these so that the overall profile is more evident. I really like the armoured cruisers, the Idzumo and Asama, both of which are really hefty and outsize many of the pre-dreadnought battleships. I'm sure they will pack a pretty good punch as well.

  1. Nice looking models. Those old armoured cruisers were a force to be reckoned with in their time.

  2. They do look good Jim - when will you have them painted by? ;)
