For the serious model enthusiast, this immaculate 1/250 scale replica of the Soya will recreate the engineering splendor of Japan's famed Antarctic mission in 1956. The icebreaker was pivotal in the now legendary post-war exploration of the South Pole area and this model does the original full justice.
There are propellers that move, hatches that open, cranes, and the cabin lights can even be lit up for the final effect. Everything comes full built already so you can immediately enjoy the visual wonders of maritime adventure in your home.
The set includes sailors, a complete display case with "sea" and "ice" plates, oil drums, crew (30 figures), animals (22 figures), and vehicles (including a helicopter and plane). The display stand can be adjusted so that the Soya is "veering" in the sea, plus there is night lighting so you can create spectacular nocturnal scenes in the snow.
