Thanks Stefano, I noticed that Skywave/Pit-Road makes a 1/350 SORYU scale model, and they add the letter "U" in it's name, but it appears to be the same submarine. Problem is I can't find one for sale in the USA. About 90% of orders I've sent to Japan or China from off of the internet including ebay, they have stolen my money and do not send anything, even when they had a 100% feedback rating.------ So I don't order models from Japan or China anymore.-------- I have ordered static scale models from Austrailia, UK, Canada, Bulgaria, and other countries. all with good results/no problems. I'm going to take a close look at theTrumpiter kit you mentioned, and consider getting it. Although, I'm trying to collect only 1/350 scale, but somtime you have to go with 1/700 because of all the models that are available in that scale. OKB Grigorov is a good example. I wish he were to come out with a 1/350 scale model submarine for each 1/700 scale he has available.
