From Fujimi comes a 1/3000 scale kit set of the JMSDF Escort Flotilla 4, consisting of the following 8 ships: DDH-184 Kaga, DD-105 Inazuma, DD-106 Samidare, DD-113 Sazanami, DDG-172 Shimakaze, DDG-176 Chokai, DD-104 Kirisame, DD-117 Suzutsuki. Two sea level plates (molded in dark blue) are included for display, along with decals for the ship numbers. The ships have been molded in a newly developed color tone exclusively for MSDF vessels, similar to "dark gray N4". The Japanese giant mantis joins the Living Thing Arc series of model kits from Fujimi! It snaps together and is molded in color, so painting and glue aren't needed; it'll be posable after assembly, too, so you can reproduce lots of intimidating mantis postures! (Note: The mantis comes molded in a flat green color, so painting is recommended to achieve a realistic look.) At about 15.6cm long after assembly, it's a bigger size than achieved by real mantises.
