Topic review - IJN Yamato, 1/350, 1945

I have ordered the 'new tool' version.

I've got tired of continuous bad fitting, mistakes in this old kit. Considering the number of aftermarket parts I have bought it was also a shame...

I have also ordered Skulski's book so we will see what will come out of it...

Anyway, good luck with Your build!

Jose, when You will have: 3 Kids, Wife and house than You will see! ;)

Thank you Larry! I do recommend the new tool. Having owned both it's no comparison. Keep in mind there is much conflicting information on Yamato even between aftermarket sets. There are 4 views on the AA shields on the 25 mms open mounts alone. Make a judgement call and don't get too caught up in getting every detail correct. Even Skulski and Tamiya differ on the number of open 25mms mounts (26 vs 28). I went with 28.

New tool version defo is a great kit, though it has some flaws. Mind though, the Skulski book contains errors as well!

Thank You very much.

As I have been looking through the books on Yamato the greatest help will be: 'Super drawings in 3D - Yamato' from Kagero. I have already ordered this position.

Joe,
It looks that despite the fact it is a 'new tool' version, there are still many mistakes and parts needing correction...

I have the early version of the model and it is much worse. I am honestly thinking about buying the 'new tool' version. What is Your advice?

Awesome work, Joe!! It is coming along beautifully! I don't know how you guys who build 1:350 boats do it. I have enough trouble with 1:200. I'd go blind, not to mention start raving mad, if it were any smaller.

You're going to have a real masterpiece when you get it finished.

Thank you Martin and Gewoon! Progress is steady at 10 hours a week. I only photograph when I have enough done. The paravanes were a pain and took about a week. Thanks again.

About time! :heh:

I especially like the way the main battery turrets are coming along, and your "barrel farm". Do you have to water those to make more barrels grow? :scratch:

Looking very good there Joe!

Those paravanes are things which left me frustrated and in anger when trying to assemble them :big_grin: Well done!

More progress. I am assembling much of the Pontos add-ons. The secondary turrets are plated with Lion Roar sheets. The barrels and blast bags are Pontos.
