Modern Micronauts (Japanese Navy): LST 4001 Osumi Class Dock Landing Ship
The Ōsumi class LST, is a Japanese amphibious transport dock. The class is also known as the Oosumi class. While the Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force describes the Ōsumi class as tank landing ships, they lack the bow doors and beaching capability traditionally associated with LSTs. Functionally, their well deck makes the Ōsumi class more like a dock landing ship (LSD).
As of 2014 there are 3 Ōsumi vessels active with the JMSDF.
Modern Micronauts are 1:2400 (1”=200’) scale miniature metal waterline models of the warships of the world’s navies roughly from the 1950s to present.

Micronauts are the perfect warship models for collectors and new wargaming admirals alike.
