Hey all!

Wondering about 1/300 scale Japanese castle kits, the plastic ones,,. Like this:


Anyone ever build one or seen one? I cannot seem to find much information about them….

Fujimi are decent. I have built their Inuyama castle, and it would definitely work on a tabletop, though it had a lot of shortcuts such as using stickers instead of molded details on the balcony etc.

Doyusha make nicer castle kits, but they are often either too small, or too big. But they have a couple of kits at 1/350 scale that I think would work. I have built their Edo and Gifu castles, and both very very nice kits.

Hm, okay, thanks… I ordered a 1/350 Kyoto castle from Doyusha… hopefully that will work. Its okay I think if it is a bit small… usually terrain works best if it is a bit smaller than the actual scale of the miniatures, I find.

I have the Inuyama castle, still in the plastic in storage someplace. I recall the stickers, nice little kit tho.

Have built several of the castles thought the ones I have are 1/700. All were nice kits. I also broke one down and made smaller houses out of the bits. I use them for a Land Ironclads game.

There is a photograph of a scratchbuilt castle a few posts down.

Scale would be about 6mm, though I use that size with 10mm figures.

Here's a pic of some Baccus figures alongside the Doyusha 1/280 Hikone castle model:
