Well this ship is turning out just fine so far. But I do have a question: Since you made her 'full hull' and have the screws added on and the hull slightly weathered; are you putting her in water? I figure you're not. Looking forward to the remainder of this build.

Lookin' real good Mark. Ya see.....this is the reason I don't build ships. A friggin auto model takes me in the upwards of 6-7 months to complete. I can't imagine how long one of these would take. lol

 

 

Thanks for looking in Mate. 6-7 Months would be a very quick build for me.....Cheers mark

I looked them up on various Sites and they appear to be Frame Damage Markers for the Deck. 

 

If you come across any photos or links on it that would be great.  Are you going to apply them on your build?

Hey, a question for you (or anyone that may know) I'm currently working on this build as well and noticed the following decals provided with the Pontos deck:

 

 

I have looked everywhere (other builds, Kure model, etc) and have never seen anyone place the deck numbers that Pontos has provided. 

 

Does anyone know if these are correct or incorrect to add? :confused:

 

I looked them up on various Sites and they appear to be Frame Damage Markers for the Deck. They are not Decals either as they are Dry Transfers. You will need to burnish them down and not treat them like Decals or it could cause some problems.....Cheers mark

Your Yamato looks beautiful so far!  I have been curious about this kit and am looking forward to this thread.  That Pontos detail set should help render this excellent kit a true work of art.

Thanks Bill. Have started using the Pontos Set already for the Degaussing Cable and the Flight Deck Bracing.....Cheers Mark

Hi Mark,

Another fine line of work coming from your bench.  This kit it is quite unique in how its constructed. There sure were a lot of screws in that hull.

 

Thanks Scott. Thought I would need a Srewdriver more than I needed Glue.

Excellent work. I’m taking notes on how you are painting the hull. It really looks like the weathering will be beautiful.

 

Thanks Mate. Am very happy at how it has turned out.....Cheers mark

After a small Hiatus thanks to work and life she is still alive and growing. Her Hull has been pre-Shaded then Mist coated to allow the underlying Colours to show through. Yamato is now Gloss Coated awaiting some weathering. 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
