Ok I don't know why but Tamiya have split the Hull in an unusual way. Some careful puttying and sanding to come.....Cheers mark

Strange, their original Yamato is a one piece hull,whats the point of splitting it,is there an advantage to doing this ?

Do those T4, T6 etc. brackets support the deck once it is placed on the hull?

There's a review by Tracy White on Internet Modeler. He is quite familiar with the engineering of injection molded kits.

His observation is that the hull is so large with so much complex detail, that casting multiple parts was necessary.

It looks as though you've handled the seam perfectly.

The only thing I can think of is to get as much Detail into this Area of the Hull.....Cheers mark

There is a Mid Deck to go into the Hull. This supports the full Gun Turret Details belowdecks.....Cheers mark

Thanks Mate. That is the only thing I can think of for the way they have Moulded the Hull.....Cheers mark
