1/350 Yamato progress. Forward and aft secondary superstructure mounts, most aircraft tracks on the aft deck, the majority of hose reals and other miscellaneous deck items have been added.

Thank you Blacman! I installed the searchlights, gun directors and chrysanthemum decals on the amidships super structure:

Thank you Gewoon, Martin and Dan! Dan, the Hasegawa Jakes have better panel detail. They also have a blank spot for the canopy whereas Tamiya has a molded on canopy that must be removed if you want real glass. The Petes are comparable but Tamiya has molded on canopies that must be removed from there as well.

Beautiful, Joe.

Just out of curiosity, why the Hasegawa versions? Are the Tamiya versions not as sharp?

Those float planes look sharp, Joe!

another update, good to see. I was lurking in the corner waiting for it :big_grin: . Floatplanes are well executed. Nice!

All 4 float planes are finally done. 3 F1M2 'Petes' ad one E13A Jake. I used Hasegawa planes and the rainbow seaplane set:

Sorry, I'm posting as a guest so I'm not allowed to upload any pictures on this forum. Nevertheless, if you do a net search you will most certainly find them - one in particular with a couple of near miss bombs splashes while Yamato was executing a "sharp" port side turn (March 1945, Inland Sea). That picture is particularly interesting as the white of the sea foam left behind the ship makes the stern details more distinguishable.

Could you please post the March 1945 aerial photos you're talking about in this thread?

I see...The crane tower was out by the end of 1944. All 1945 aerial pictures of Yamato confirm that (including the Inland Sea pictures from March 1945 for that matter).

Sorry to disappoint you. I'm actually modeling it in March 45. Both the latest Skulski book and the 1/10th scale model in Kure show it with the crane in it's 1945 configuration. Most assume a 45 Yamato is modeled right before it sailed with canvas bags, no crane tripod and no aircraft and with the deck painted black. I'm modeling it before that point to show her in all her glory.

Wasn't this supposed to be a 1945 build? Knowing that Yamato's crane tower was removed during late 1944 refit, is there any particular reason you decided to install it anyway? I know that there are people that think Yamato looked better with its crane tower (and associated aft rigging) installed, but as far as I am concerned, it kind of hurts seeing such a promising work like yours slipping away from historical accuracy.
