The are IJN (Imperial Japanese Navy) scale model ships. Most are around 1:350 scale, a larger scale where some of the models can be over 3 feet long.

Most have hundreds of parts, but can be a rewarding project to display once assembled.

No Japanese fleet model collection would be complete without the mighty Yamato.

She was the heaviest Battleship ever built in the world. Her 46 cm (18.1-inch) main guns ( 9 of them) were the largest guns ever mounted to a warship. They could fire a shell 26 miles.

She was officially commissioned just after the attack at Pearl Harbor (she did not participate in that event).

She fought in various skirmishes during her career, but was eventually sunk in April of 1945. During her sinking, two of the bow magazines exploded, causing a cloud that reached up in the air more than 3.7 miles. (The sister ship to the Yamato is the Musashi).

Of course many other IJN ships fought in the war, and there are models of these ships, as well as older ships from the Japanese Navy.

When you see the JMSDF, that stands for Japan Maritime Self Defence Force (almost sounds like something out of a scifi or Godzilla movie!).

This is the modern Japanese Naval fleet.
