IJA Awa Maru for sale
Posted by John Youngerman on 6/8/2017, 4:03 pm
IJA Awa Maru was given the task of picking up Allied prisoners and Japanese civilians in February 1945 for transport to Japan. The Allies qwere notified of the ship and her purpose and passengers. Nevertheless, she was sunk April 1 by USS Queenfish with only one survivor. I made a master of Awa Maru some time ago and it was produced by HAI(HAI 836). Because of the additional work involved, none of the units painted and sold by me personally had the white crosses added. This is the last unit and I did add the white crosses. If it sparks your interest, it is for sale for $50 - due to extra work decaling and painting crosses. My e-mail address is "email@example.com". Here are photos of the ship after the extra work.
