Carlo Cestra. Super Drawings in 3-D. Ise (whose name comes from an ancient Japanese province on Honshu, now part of Mie Prefecture) was the lead ship of the two-vessel Ise-class battleships of the Imperial Japanese Navy, which saw combat service during the Pacific War.

Laid down as battleship 5 at the Kawasaki Heavy Industries shipyard in Kobe on 10 May 1915, launched on 12 November 1916, completed on 15 December 1917, and assigned to the Kure Naval District.

Completed too late for service in World War I, Ise patrolled off the Siberian coast and in northern waters in support of Japan’s Siberian Intervention against the Bolshevik Red Army. From the mid-1920s through the late 1930s, Ise patrolled mostly off of the China coast.

On 12 April 1922, she hosted a delegation which included Prince of Wales, the future King Edward VIII of the United Kingdom, and the future Lord Mountbatten.

Illustrated with (143) profiles in 3-D, fold-out line-drawings in (1/350, 1/50, 1/250, 1/200 and 1/100 scale). 81 pages.
