Re: IJN Repair Ship Hayase ex Chin Chiang
interesting that her apparent fate was damaged by Chinese aircraft and apparently abandoned?
( Hai model )
Any thoughts on her correct color scheme ( assuming light grey isn't correct ). She was an ex-Chinese merchant ships captured in 1937 and converted to repair ship. I doubt she left the Yangtze to go to a yard in China, probably done in Shanghai?
Would she have been in white, or one of the naval yard dark greys?
I can find no images anywhere..except an unpainted resin kit in 1/700th.
