Tamiya 1/350 i-400 kit
I just got this kit from a guy in Hong Kong. Beautiful kit, of course I would expect nothing less from Tamiya. The 1/48 Seiran kit is also gorgeous. They obviously did thier homework, because both kits are dead-on scale as far as I can tell.
The most useful part of the kit (for me) is the drawings! They are more detailed and accurate than anything I've seen. The largest format drawing is on the cardboard insert that goes in the box to support the trees and hull. Partial scan attached, it was slightly too long to fit in my scanner.
I'm in the process of digitizing (tracing) these drawings. I'm going to use them as a basis for the larger model.
