To IJN fans: 3D-WILD is proud to announce the release of 1/350 IJN Ryujo, the "weirdly beautiful" aircraft carrier model kit, which is the FIRST & ONLY 1/350 Ryujo kit, and maybe even the FIRST & ONLY 1/350 IJN light aircraft carrier kit on the market! Please check the product link here.
Take-home information about Ryojo -- she is a light IJN aircraft carrier built using all the left tonnage allowed by Washington Naval Treaty of 1922 after construction of 3 other carriers by Japanese Navy. Like Hosho, Akagi and Kaga, she became the foundation of know-how to build more sophisticated carriers such as Soryu/Hiryu and Shokaku class. Classified as a light carrier, Ryojo actively took the role of a fleet carrier and had more combat experience than all the other IJN's light carriers did. Ryujo cultivated a big number of Japanese Ace pilots during the Second Sino-Japanese War in the 1930s and the Pacific War in the early 1940s. She was sunk in the Battle of the Eastern Solomons on 24 August 1942.
