Looking for any info on any IJN Troop transports?

Looking for any info on WW2 IJN Supply/Troop transport ships. looking at making a harbor diorama (pre Midway or earlier) of the loading afv/trucks etc. on to a supply ship.

Any suggestion on a 1/700 scale model?



There are a lot of 1/700 models from Skywave, Pit Road, Hasegawa and Aoshima available. Go to scalemates and seach these manufacturers there. It is a good starting point to find what you are looking for.

Mark :beer:

I believe Fujimi also do several IJN and IJA transport/supply ships.

Remember the IJA operated their own ships.

Thanks. I think I’ll go with a Niko kit, $$$, but looks like the only heavy lift/landing vessel I can see.

Thanks. I might go with a Niko kit.
