Some areas for improvement on this model are 1. 4.7 in HA anti-aircraft guns are not well represented 2. the rear boat deck under the flight deck is a little large compared to my Model Art No. 910 2015 February. Most side drawing references would not reveal this issue, 3. deck 2 shape is still not quite correct (too curved and not wide enough. again side drawings used for making the model would not reveal this issue), and 4. No ships boats (will have to get from spares box).
Another note: no masts are included with this model, but as the masts usually seen on these types of models are way to thick you will have to mount your own masts. Only 2 are required for this model).
Model as received from Shapeways

I will post more pictures of the model after it has been cleaned and primed.
I also received a 1944 version of the Akitsu Maru in FUD. I will post pics and a review after it has been cleaned and primered.
