Higaki Kaisen Model Construction


This is one of the finest kits produced by Woody Joe of Japan. It is designed to mimic the construction of an actual Japanese coastal trader with a frame-less, keel-less hull. It also features a detailed interior layout. In order to better facilitate viewing of the interior construction, some deck and cabin roof planking was intentionally left off.

The model was constructed over the course of several months and was a much quicker build than most models of Western-style sailing ships. Much of this comes through the well engineered design and use for laser-cut parts.
