FineScale Modeler reviews the 1/350 scale plastic model ship kit

Originally intended to be a passenger/cargo ship, the Junyo was the first Japanese aircraft carrier to have the bridge and funnel in the same island. The ship took part in the Aleutian and Guadalcanal operations before being damaged on June 19, 1944, at the Battle of the Marianas. With its flight deck unusable, the ship returned to Japan. Torpedoed by an American sub on Dec. 9, 1944, the Junyo retreated to port, where it waited out the rest of the war.
