Painted sample

I'm pleased to share our latest 1:600 scale Age of Sail ship model release. Now it's the turn for a Japanese warship from the Sengoku Jidai and early Edo periods – the fearsome Atakebune. Conceived as floating fortresses, atakebunes were primarily used as formidable boarding platforms, with little ordnance on board – generally four cannons, or six at most.

Model kit

As for the model itself, it consists of a high quality cast-resin hull completed by a set of seven 3Dprinted alternative parts – oars sets, a couple of masts with unfurled sails, a laid-down mast, and two alternative on-deck housings. The kit is complemented by a flagsheet comprising a number of Tokugawa shogunate flags – that can also be purchased separately.
