Tamiya – 1:350 Japanese Cruiser Mogami (78021)

The unique Japanese Navy Aircraft Carrying Cruiser Mogami was built in compliance with

the London Naval Treaty following WWI. She was initially equipped with 15.5cm cannons

(5×3) and was completed in July 1935. The 15.5cm cannons were later replaced with

3×20.3cm cannons transforming the Mogami into a heavy cruiser. During WWII, the Mogami

took part in numerous operations such as the Malay landing operation, the Battle of Sunda

Strait, and the Battle of Midway. However, it was at Midway where the Mogami suffered

extensive damage and during repairs, a flight deck that could accommodate 11 floatplanes

was fitted. After sustaining heavy damage from the US fleet during the Battle of Leyte, her

crew abandoned ship and she was scuttled with torpedoes.

Understanding Scale

The scale of a model is its size as a proportion to the real-life item. For instance, a 1:18 scale model means that every 1 unit of measurement on the model equals 18 units on the real item. If you divide the real item's size by 18, you'd get the size of the 1:18 model. Please note that models can vary slightly in size, as not all real-life items, like cars or planes, have the same dimensions.
