Thanks for the nice comments! I am weathering her bit more over the next week or two, not that much...just adding a really thin dark wash over most of the ship, maybe add some soot, wear marks on the deck and grey it out a bit...i also plan to tone down the airplanes a smidge with a very thin light wash and finished detailing them. as usual, expect more pics... ;)

Wow, no surprize that took the best ship awards. i havent seen the Best of show winner yet, but Im astounded this one didnt win that too. Very nice work, Maybe I should take a 40 year hiatus.

thanks Carsenault, but my Yamato didn't even make it out of its category, got a Silver medal and People's Choice award for it though!!

Clean, crisp, neat&tight!
No CA remains detected.
Very nice paintjob too.
My respect for guts and stamina doing one of these late war floating AA batteries.
4real.
Thats the most challenging to me on those.

You´re going to add all that rigging as well?

But seriously folks, that is amazing, the total presentation!

haha! no wave motion gun, so this is closest I could come up with... a lttle build log on one of the AA guns:


parts cut off


roll'd n fol'd


main barrels added (toothpick is to set barrels parallel as glue sets)


4 (recoil cylinders?) added


elevation gear added underneath


my mat needs kleaning :)


side parts added


6 parts on this piece, some adjustment still required


completed. 22 parts per gun, 6 of this type on Yamato
