Rare Sanwa Kit #309 1/1000 Japanese B Class Cruiser Mutsu
Early plastic kit issued by Sanwa (Japan) between 1959 and 1963. It is unbuilt and complete in a good box- one end has the tears as shown. The small parts are still factory bagged. Molded in dark grey and red.
Sanwa also made a line of automobile and aircraft kits, but the ship kits seem to be the least common. Sanwa ceased production in 1963.
