Web browser game Kantai Collection (aka Kancolle) is becoming immensely popular in Japan. While merchandise are announced and some are now available for pre-order, some people make their own. Here is one that is spread around recently, which is a custom mod nendoroid puchi Shoukaku by Katakori (カタコリ), based on the Japanese aircraft carrier of the same name.

Anthropomorphised aircraft carriers in Kancolle are depicted as girls in Kyuudou (Japanese archery) attires. Shoukaku is no exception, who is drawn by コニシ.

Back. The ship details, as well as the planes that form the arrowheads, are taken directly from a 1/700 scale Shoukaku model.

White line on the skirt is made with carefully carved out finish sheet, which are very thin coloured films as an alternate solution to painting over fine details I suppose.

The finished nendoroid. She looks much cuter than I expected!

All work and images are from Katamari (かたまり).



  1. Stunning custom job on this as It looks like I can buy it right off the shelf. Love the added accessories as it really adds to the figure.

    1. The modification and paintwork do look very well done. It's not surprising how many people who this custom nendoroid puchi already (I'm a little tempted too)!
