Thanks for the comments Gents much appreciated. Just a small update. The P/E Degaussing Cable has been added along with her P/E Name on the Stern. Mr Surfacer 1000 has been used to replaced lost or damaged Hull Detail. More to come soon.....Cheers mark

Hi;

    Gotta chime in here. First one of these I ever saw was in a hobby shop in Concord, Cal. Although the shop owner assured me it was a regular kit,set up fo the Intended R.C. I almost didn't believe him. No P.E. back then But Migawd whata large model! Almost didn't fit in my Chevette !

OK the Hull is now together. I sanded off the Detail on the F/D for the Pontos Part and the fit is perfect. The only draback is all the seams that have to be puttied and sanded if you want her yo be a great Build. Ah well the fun continues.....Cheers mark

OK more work done on the Hull. Feels strange that most of the Work is with Screwing the Parts and not Gluing....More to come soon.....Cheers mark

This is a beautiful model.  I  built the original Tamiya 1/350th Yamato without any aftermarket and that ship looks great as is.  This was a home run from Tamiya.

 

Have fun with this.

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.

 

 

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

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

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

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

 

 

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

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
