IJN Maya by Javlin - Aoshima - 1/700

Recommended Posts

I p/u this little gem some time back and I like this scale 1) If you just want to build and that's it wal la 2)you can detail and make a dio which I think is were I want to take my skills? So this is a test run got Big Mo in there on one pic which will be my second water dio with a destroyer escort.I have about 10hr in the Maya ATTM.Thks for looking ;)

 

I do have some generic 1/700 railing the Maya will get and she will get some rigging ..

How do you like working at 1:700 scale?  I'm going to dip my toe into this crazy world of plastic kits and microscopic photo etched detail sets, but I'm starting with larger scales (1:350 and a 1:144).  Those seem so small, I can only imagine how cross-eyed I would be working at 1:700!

The one thing that 1/700 offers is smaller Dio's and there are some guys out there doing some eye catching work don't know if I will ever be able to achieve those results.I think one that does that kind of work are artist in some regards for they can see the big picture me not so much I can then I can't.The 1/700 goes together quicker but I need to figure out what those guys are doing rigging which I was fighting with it tonight with stretched sprue and the rigging on any ship makes it pop.I have ordered up some pieces for the 1/700 Ise and will see how it plays out and if I have the eyesight/patience for it.This guy doe some fantastic work that puts you right there.  http://www.shipmodels.info/mws_forum/viewtopic.php?f=60&t=191192

Wow that’s amazing work.  Where was it posted if you don’t mind me asking?

 

I have the Seawatch Waterline Dioramas book (which is fantastic by the way) and have always wanted to do a diorama build.  I can’t do it with the wooden kits I’m building now because the dioramas would be way too big, and plus you either have to cut the hull near the waterline or have a much higher base, both of which seem like non starters for me (at least at the moment).  

 

So, I thought I’d try out a plastic model instead precisely to do dioramas.  I like the ocean displays, but that diorama you posted with the cliff side is absolutely fantastic.  What a way to bring things to life!

I got my new glue in for the rigging on the Maya I also got some ezline fine black but I have decided I started with stretch sprue will finish with sprue.The glue is a Revell professional about medium consistency recommended by Jim Baumann then the vertical lines are attached to the horizontal/perpendicular via matt varnish nothing goes tight yet you the smoke from incense/heat!I am going to try it :rolleyes: Kevin

 

Oh by the way i made the cables for the crane and ther is a hook out above the platform though a little crude was made from PE 1/72 number the "2" :D

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
