Starting a new project which is bit of a departure from my previous projects. I have bought (and received) the full kit for the 1/250 scale model of the IJN Yamato. This is mixture of standard wooden hull construction, photo etched parts and die cast metal parts for the superstructures and guns, etc. I have had to sort through the delivery and I believe I have received all the parts, there were 90 different packs. The kit does not include a build manual but this is available on line in pdf format as 22 separate files. I have printed out the first 12 files.
Hello everyone I'd like to start a new log for the Yamato. This kit is the one DeAgostini brought out a couple of years ago here in Belgium. I was able to buy this kit from anoter shipmodeller who had lost intrest in building her. He let her go for only 50 € so this was really a bargain This is what i got : I must admit i'm a little terrified of the adventure ahead of me, after watching the the superb logs and builds of Greg's Yamato and Carl's Musashi. The latter being the Yamato's sister ship. I hope i can do her credit by building a nice model of
OK, I'll make a start on my next build log. The 1/350 Tamiya (new tool) Yamato with Pontos upgrade set and numerous other bits and pieces.

I also got a cheap old took kit off ebay for painting practice when I get around to buying an airbrush.
Hey everyone, After finishing my Cutty Sark (available for viewing in the gallery) I decided to try a plastic kit with a PE set. I had never seen these PE sets before and one of the reasons I really enjoy building models is due to their detail. The harder and more detailed the kit is, the more I want to build it. So I saw this Yamato Kit and saw the PE set and my eyes just about fell out of my head. I had some pics up before the crash, and I'm not sure what I had, but these are some that may have been here before. Anyway, I have made much more progress than the pics indicate
