Fujimi has announced the August 2017 release of a full hull version of the IJN Atago in 1/700 scale.
According to Hobbylink Japan:

“Molded in gray and red plastic, this full-hull model of the Atago includes decals and photo-etched parts.”

The detailing on Fujimi's upgraded model from 2014 looks to be well executed, and the very complete dedicated photoetch brass fret included is a big plus. Another plus with this new release is the option to build the ship as a full-hull model.

The Fujimi Atago DX is listed by Hobbylink Japan at https://hlj.com/product/FUJ45127 and can be ordered for ¥3,840 (about US$36.00).

That is a lot of PE.

That's a SERIOUS amount of PE! That looks to be about $15 - $20 worth of PE, which leaves the plastic cost less than $20! Is Fujimi competing with Flyhawk? I think their plastic quality still falls short of Flyhawk's, but they're trying to compensate with lots of PE. Is design and production of a PE fret cheaper than machining detail into a steel mold for styrene? I notice in one of the pics the model is mounted on pylons - are these included turned brass parts, or colored styrene?

OIC - it's a re-release with upgraded PE. Didn't read the description carefully.

Yes, looks too be a very nice PE up-grade. I will get me one for sure. Yes, PE is very economical. You would be surprised how inexpensive it really is.
