Your model of the Yamato is impressive. The weathering of the hull is a good idea, I would also do some aging of the superstructures. Means, darkening edges to make the details stronger. Looking forward to see the progress of your model, and the final Yamato!

A few of the WW2 battleships of the US were modernized and carried cruise missiles and helicopters. I could imagine a "modernized" Yamato that carries missiles, helicopters and some F-35 VTOL jets. :-)

Don't rush, she's looking beautiful and we're enjoying the anticipation of your next update!

In the pattern: Lots in my stash. But let's close out the SOD and do the 1/350 Enterprise I started a few years ago.

Because I am one of the fortunate ones to hold down a Full Time Job in the last few Months it makes it difficult to spend Time at the Bench except for Week-Ends so it is a slow Build. With that out of the way, most of her defensive A/A Mounts are now onboard. I feel like that I can start to see the Light at the end of the Tunnel. More to come soon.....Cheers mark

Back when we had the IPMS Nationals here at Disney World Tamiya had a booth and one of their main exhibits was this model.  I ws almost drooling over it and wanted it but just couldn't afford it.

So I settled for a good deal on their original kit.  SInce I already had built the Musashi, I eventually ocnverted into a Space assualt ship with a aft flight deck and various other modifications.

 

 

It took me a long time to save it for the Kit and the Pontos Set to go with it. I am glad I was patient as it is a wonderful Kit to build.....Cheers mark

And the work continues. Nearly all of her main Superstructure is now located onboard. Will have another update soon.....Cheers mark

 

 

 

 

Did you use PE for your funnel cap?  I have the Lion Roar detail set and thought their cap didn't seem substantial enough and the plastic kit part looked better.  If you used PE would you mind showing a top down pic?  I'm currently working on mine and would like to know what you did.  Thanks!

 

 

 

 

I have built the older Tamiya Version with the Lion Roar set also. Compared to this Kit which I used the Pontos Set the Funnel Cap detail is far better in the Pontos set than the Lion Roar. Both Sets are good but the Pontos Set is slightly better....Cheers mark

Glad to see you back at the bench Mark. Others have already said how different this beast is constructed vs. the older model like the one I have. Great work so far!
