I would like to know,who makes high quality 1/700th WWII early pacific,carrier based aircraft for the IJN?
I was told that 3d printing was the way to go,but in this scale? I'm just not sure about the detail.To me its always about the quality and detail!
Fine molds look good on paper,but how many planes do you really get for the $20.00 price?
What about Tamiya 1/700th Japanese carrier plane set,31511?
How are they?
They seem to have the most in their box at 32 if I remember.
Any information will be very helpful.
Thank you.

I haven't seen them in person, but Kajika (Flyhawk) has just released some early war IJN aircraft that look promising.
