How to build IJN CV Soryu
Step 2 : Handrail, Bow, Stern


I used the photoetched handrails "AM-28 IJN Vessels Guard Rails Set 1" and "AM-03 IJN Ship's Accessory Handrail & Ladder Set" from Fine Molds.

I cut off the tabs for sticking from the handrail because those are the parts for beginners. (Detail)

Funnels deck on starboard.

Midship-part of port.


I scratched build the machine-guns deck on bow. I put the narrow space type handrail to the machine-guns deck. Then I put the girders to the backside.

I replicated the equipment of anchor deck. Chain cables, hawse holes, capstans, bollard heads, fairleaders, chrysanthemum crest board etc. Chain cables are micro chain for hobby.

I put the photoetched hatches and ladders to tip of the hanger. I replicated the jackstay of stretched sprue.

I put a curve type handrail on the bow, and replicated he anchor recess.


remade the boat deck on stern. The beams of backside are the photoetch "AG05 Metal Belt (Circle Hole Narrow) Stainless Steel t-0.15mm" from Fine Molds.

Lookout was put on the boat deck. The window flame AE-18 Metal Mesh Square 09 from Fine Molds.

I put the pillars of MG Sponson of 0.8mm brass rods.

The equipment of hull was quite completed.
