Rencently, the Japanese ship model society The Rope Tokyo, released newsletter number 111. The group seems to be as active as ever, though they have been forced, as have we here in the States, to meet via Zoom. Naturally, this impairs certain activities, but they seem to be doing well. In fact, as of this writing, their 46th annual exhibition is taking place for one week in Tokyo.
Of particular interest in this issue is the second part of a USS Susquehanna build by Mr. Kiyoshi Takanarita, who based his model on the Gilbert McArdle’s book, published by Seawatch Books. Also, an article about Mr. Magnus McLeod of the UK, and his modeling of the HMS Royal Oak.
