Wojtek:

What an amazing work you have completed! I am glad to try to follow in your footsteps. If you have a moment, I have a few questions:

1) Was the armor plate dated to 1945? (I too am creating to the surrender ceremony)

2) If so, do you have any feedback on the Eduard PE for that install? I will search your build log to see how you did it. Very impressive.

3) Did you reconfigure the hull? Why or why not?

4) The deck at the surrender ceremony looked bluegreen according to the pictures I received from the museum where my build is going. Yours looks a bit more grey in color? Why?

thanks for your time. My build is new to this forum, but I have been sloggin with this Trumpeter for a few years, trying to get it right.

My priest (I am a chaplain) is from Poland, but all I have learned here in Colorado is "jin dobre"

looking really nice... don't forget to make the interior of the barrels black to avoid the brass look there....

That's amazing. The figures really give a scale to the size of the ship and its guns.

Some time has passed since I have been updating my Mo thread. The reason is that the size of the ship is not making it easy to make photos. The other reason is also honestly - my lazyness :cool_2:

Here is the state of my progress (I am sorry for the background):

Image

Image

Here are some photos of hull weathering:

Image

Image


I have also started to work on capitulation scene:

Image


Figurines are also done. Even when there are about 160 of them it looks a little bit not too much...

So, what do You think about this? :smallsmile:

Thank You Guys! I have a little break in my workshop because of lots of business trips.

Light box can't handle the mightiness of my Mo :big_grin:

I honestly have no idea how will I make photos of whole hull... :thinking:

Very nice work Wojtek! Details look sharp and crisp and the paint looks awesome.

Looks like you're running out of space in your light box too.....had the same issue with my 1/350. Good thing you only have to add the main hull to really see how big it is ;)

Now, it is just to put this all together... :big_grin:

I think it is about 2/3 of work with Superstructure and it looks like this:

Joe, Larry,

Thanks a milion! :thumbs_up_1:

As for shading: I use black pirimer and additionally after gloss varnish I use panelliner from Tamiya to pop those elements a bit. However, with next ship I will change the way of painting. With black primer colours look a little bit too dark form me... I will use grey primer for base and black paint only for preshading.

It's looking really nice, Wojtek! You're doing a super job. I especially like the way you make the vertical piping on the tower to stand out. How did you do that? Dis you spray a black undercoat before you put the grey on? :thumbs_up_1: :thumbs_up_1:
