IIRC, the IJN modeled a lot of its uniform practices on the RN since the RN supplied a lot of the equipment to the nascent IJN in the period prior to & following the Russo-Japanese war. Japan fought on the allied side during WWI
Shapeways offers a set of 1:72 scale RN figures in dress, officer and enlisted. There are also working &combat poses. Take one, perhaps an officer as the enlisted have flat vs peak hats, and paint in tropical white. At an inch tall who could tell
Or try contacting designer Holden direct & see if he has an IJN mod or could arrange a single figure cut from the set.
It would certainly help provide a sense of size if one could add 1/72 Japanese naval figures to this kit.
Anyone have any intel or sources as to if any might be available / forthcoming?
