Hi All,
In this diorama, a well-known operation will be viewed from a different side.

Doolittle Raid

The USS Hornet is often seen in dioramas based on this operation.
In this work I will do, there will be only 6 B-25B Mitchells on the US side. All remaining units will be depicted in a port on the Japanese Empire mainland. 

Scale 1:700
B-25B Mitchell - Trumpeter
Others Hasegawa
Maybe a few units of Niko Model ( cranes etc.) 

Let’s start with B-25B

I have some ideas on how to do it, the planes will be in the air. But how?  :smiling3:)) Some of the planes will have engine, propeller, etc. failures. Smoke, flame etc. I'm planning effects for working engine propellers.

  • GeneralModel changed the title to 1/700 | DOOLITTLE RAID | Trumpeter-Hasegawa-Niko Model | ismet guralp

I thought of using the Hyuga I had already finished and the Heian Maru next to it at the port.

I had planned the IJN-I400 submarine next to Heian Maru. A friend of mine who knew that period well warned me. Heian Maru was in the open sea at the time of the raid. At that time, Hyuga was not a hybrid aircraft carrier. The IJN-I400 submarine was produced in the following years.

So the plans changed.

The support ship would be Heian Maru's sister, HIE MARU, and the submarine would be I-16.

Since I was thinking of a crowded port, there should have been support ships.
