    Thanks, enough rope was in the kit.

    @Grant

    Just found some pics. 

    This hull was a hell of a job, I can remember that very well :)

    I wish you all the luck.

     

    Jig: two planks and clamps

    Bended hullplanks.

    I soaked them in water and placed them on the hull with rubber bands.

  2. Just ordered "The Admiral" on DVD, cannot wait to see it...

     

    Both side roars are placed, so second deck could be glued.
    In the middle there is a jig, which was in the kit.
    It is intented to obtain the right shape in the roof.

    @LA Don

    This model is the 1/65 one, but at the time I bought this one it was not available at Amazon, only in South Korea. Still remembering  shipping, customs and tax price.....

     

    @Scott

    Very nice gift from Korea you got from kids. You are ready for Japanese fleet to battle.

  4. After a really long BREAK I continued the build last months and made some progress.

    It will be more pictures than text. If there are any questions dont hesitate :)
