Tamiya 1/350 Japanese Light Cruiser Mikuma kit TA-78022

In August 1935, construction of the Mikuma, sister ship to the Mogami, was completed. Though of the same class, Mikuma's bridge and other features were slightly different from those of its sister ships. After Japans withdrawal from the London Naval Treaty in January 1936, Mikuma's original five triple 15.5cm turrets were replaced with twin 20.3cm turrets which turned her into a heavy cruiser.
