1/350 IJN Hospital Ship Hikawa Maru

Lucky lady of the NYK Line

On her maiden voyage in 1930, Hikawa Maru was one of the most majestic ocean liners plying the Pacific. Just before war broke out in 1941, the vessel was hastily refitted as a hospital ship. She survived multiple mine strikes, and by the end of the war was one of very few large Japanese passenger ships still afloat. The ship was converted back to a passenger liner until, in 1960, she was converted to a museum and floating hotel. Kit features decals and photo-etched parts, many upgrade kits are available.

Accessories such as photo-etched parts (available separately) add to the authentic looks of the finished model: HSGS2149, HSGS2150, HSGS2151
