cheers nino , I will be doing another 1/200 at a later date , got to find somewhere to put it , would love to do the missouri . their is a bloke on you tube doing one now , looks fantastic , I am doing the prince of wales now 1/350 about the same size as the mikasa .and I just finished the borodino , that was a fun build too . the turn buckles I copied off of another bloke on you tube , they added a neat look to the boat .

Hi Steve!

    

Wow!  That is fantastic work and all done in 2 months.  Got to be a record for a 1/200 scale Warship and a beautifully done model at That!

  Thanks for posting this Steve.  Great job. I might have thought you rushed as I only popped in a few times and to catch up and I looked in today and... you were done!   Now, are you going to do a few more in 1/200 for a nice comparison display?

   Jim

 

P.S. Nice Turnbuckles.  They actually look they will work.

I love this painting of Adm. Togo at Tsushima. Your boat is painted as the Battle of the Yellow Sea 9 months earlier, but I think the sandbags are really cool, and you should model them.

Coming together very, very nicely!

Out of curiosity, do you know how many parts in the kit?

Steve,

You are doing a bang up job on her. I wish I had the room to build her but alas I only have room for her smaller self in 1/350.

Hi,

 

Your build is turning out great.  There is something nice looking about many of these old pre-dreadnoughts, and I especially like the 1902 paint scheme of your build. Smile

Steve,

Looking good!

Following with interest.

Although I don't really have room to display more large ships in my small abode, and, like Steve (docidle), I also have the Hasegawa 1/350 kit, I'll still enjoy riding along.

Steve,

I’m pulling a bear rug for this build! I have the Hasegawa 1/350 kit which is impresssive, but this one is VERY cool. Great start and I’m looking forward to following this WIP.

I fully agree with you on the Maine kit GM. I would SO buy and build a new injection kit at that scale!
