Fujimi has released FUJ40131, a tiny version of the Kure Naval Port in 1/3000 scale.
Apparently designed for wargaming, Fujimi’s little port comes with full port facilities and some of what have to be the smallest injected plastic ship models around.The scene measures 29.5 x 17.6 x 4.0 cm.

According to Hobbylink Japan:

“Continuing their line of 1/3000 scale WWII Japanese naval bases Fujimi has now released the Kure Naval Port! Located close to Hiroshima, Kure is probably most famous for having been the location where the massive IJN Yamato battleship was built (and the location of the current Yamato museum). This kit includes one Kure Naval yard, a variety of dock buildings and seven 1/3000 scale warships including the Yamato! All parts come molded in grey plastic”.

The new micro-fleet anchorage is listed by Hobbylink Japan at http://hlj.com/product/FUJ40131/Nav and can be ordered now for ¥2,080 (about US$20.00).

This is an interesting concept. Something grander in scale than single ship models but small enough to fit on a shelf. At a price that doesn't break the bank. I wonder if there is any chance they would do a Pearl Harbor kit, especially since we are close to the 75th anniversary of the attack.

Bandai has a full line of 1/2000 scale ships so this might be an attempt to break into that market. Of course the line included Space Battleship Yamato shops too.
