Hi guys!

 

So as I promised here's color pics for Fusō. Yamashiro will follow shortly after.

As always the pics are found here: http://blog.livedoor.jp/irootoko_jr/

Let's get started!

 

 

BJQo0ac.jpgHere we start with Fusō early on in her career, undergoing sea trials on August 24, 1915.

 

APY610T.jpgFusō at anchor, in 1916, giving her sailors some rays.

 

GeAwbk6.jpgFusō after her first reconstruction, in February 1928 being chased by an observation balloon. Over her bow you can see Nagato and Mutsu.

 

WiWGgXP.jpgFusō getting her new pagoda and new paint on April 28, 1933, at Kure Naval Yard.

 

XNZBpoW.jpgFusō after reconstruction on sea trials on May 10, 1933.

 

0JLRBnF.jpgFusō going the other way.

 

BSdwlBH.jpgFusō on August 16-20, 1933 in formation with a Nagato-class.

 

GJGGCPD.jpgFusō shows how bristling her broadside is training all her guns to starboard, Yamashiro is seen ahead of her in Spring, 1935.

 

 

 

And that's it for Fusō! Stay tuned for part 2 with Yamashiro!

Fair winds and following seas captains! :honoring:

There's just something very odd about the proportions of this ship yet at the same time, something very appealing about it.  Love my Fuso.

Cool to see the progress through the reconstructions, too.  Between the 2nd and 3rd pics, she loses the arms on the sides that were for holding out the torpedo nets.

 

Nice pics, OP!

Love these pics.  I've built many 350 scale models of nearly all larger classes of IJN ships and the Fuso is my dear favorite.  The pagoda styling was best on Fuso as opposed to Yamashiro.  A very sexy ship indeed.
