Dan Kaplan é um dos papas quando o assunto é Marinha Imperial. Ele bate ponto no site da Model Warships e de tempos a tempos nos brinda com uma montagem. A última que acompanhei foi a do porta-aviões Taiho, onde ele usou o kit da Fujimi na escala 1/700. Sensacional! O melhor ainda é que a gente sempre pesca nessas montagens dicas valiosas para o nosso uso.

O resultado final foi publicado hoje.

Vejam aqui:

Ele incluiu um link que remete à montagem e outro às referências e melhorias efetuadas.

Imperdível para quem monta navios em geral e em especial para quem navega na 1/700.
