Fantastic Work of Japanese Ship Modelers – THE ROPE, Tokyo

THE ROPE, Toyko, is Japan’s largest ship model society, and they have some extremely talented ship modelers. Every Spring, they have a ship model exhibition, and photos of the exhibited models are posted on the group’s well-organized website.

With their next exhibition coming up in April, it seems a good time to take a look at works from their prior events.

The Rope has an excellent website with an english language section. They even have downloadable copies of their newsletter in english. The site is really worth checking out, but the best part is the gallery of models from past exhibitions.

Most of the text in their photo gallery section is in Japanese, but much of the essential information is also given in english. Check out the models from last year’s event – Click Here.
