The 1:450 scale Hasegawa kit of the flagship of Japanese strike force for the Pearl Harbor attack and the Midway operation, Akagi is the largest plastic model for this classic aircraft carrier (porte avions). Although an older release, the kit has held up very well and can build into a very impressive model. Pascal Bruyere shows how well the Akagi will appear with a little care. The only addition from the stock kit is some brass photo-etch from L'Arsenal.
