Description Extended Information
Eaglemoss EMGC21 Imperial Japanese Navy Battleship Fuso [With Collector Magazine] (1:1100 Scale) "In case opportunity for destruction of a major portion of the enemy fleet is offered, or can be created, such destruction becomes the primary task."
- Admiral Chester Nimitz to Admiral William "Bull" Halsey, concerning his order prior to the Battle of Leyte Gulf, October 1944

Ise was the lead ship of the two-vessel Ise-class battleship of the Imperial Japanese Navy, which saw combat service during the Pacific War. Ise was named after Ise Province, one of the traditional provinces of Japan, now part of Mie Prefecture.

Originally planned to be the third Fusō-class battleship, experience gained in the construction of the Fusō-class revealed a number of design issues, including weak armament and protection, which forced a redesign and new classification.

Ise was laid down at the Kawasaki Heavy Industries shipyard in Kobe on 5 May 1915, launched on 12 November 1916, and completed on 15 December 1917 and assigned to the Kure Naval District.

Completed too late for service in World War I, in the early 1920s, Ise participated in numerous patrols off the Siberia coast and in northern waters in support of Japan's Siberian Intervention against the Bolshevik Red Army.

On 12 April 1922, while at Yokohama, Ise hosted a delegation which included the Prince of Wales (the future Edward VIII), who was accompanied by his second cousin, the future Lord Mountbatten of Burma. From the mid-1920s through the late 1930s, Ise patrolled mostly off of the China coast.

In 1928-1929, Ise was rebuilt at the Kure Naval Arsenal, with its foremast increased in height in the distinctive "pagoda" style similar to Haruna. The fore funnel was fitted with a curved smoke cap, and a flying off platform for Yokosuka E1Y2 Type 14 floatplanes was fitted atop No. 5 main turret. Later, from 19301931, additional searchlights and a derrick was installed at the stern for handling floatplanes.

Shown here is a 1:1100 scale replica of the Imperial Japanese Navy battleship Fuso. Back Order! Ship Date: December 2014.

Wow, an actual metal hull!  I have collected IJN warships in many scales. These are simply great.
