Topic review - How about the Tamiya Ibuki

An BIG Update on the photo-etch for Tamiya "Ibuki" ship (aka Izumo-class+ski ramp) :cool_1: .

It looks like Tetra Models has a photo-etch set for this kit and It LOOKS :cool_2:

The set includes All rails for the galleries (boat deck and accommodation ladders), ladders going onto the FD, rails around the top of the island (bridge + flt bridge), PE for weapons (CIWS and machine guns!!), Including the refueling deck (the hole on the island starboard side). As well as netting around the FD, A/C and helo PE, it even includes brass antenna......I must admit this looks like a SWEET PE set :jump_1: :woo_hoo:

The Only Thing missing are the hull vents, but...... check it out!!

If I have not seen the Artist Hobby set, I would have like to build that Ibuki with this set....or Maybe not buying that Hasagawa PE set for Izumo-class kit from Pitroad..... :Mad_6: :doh_1:

A new video is on YouTube and I have a couple of videos on that site (hope that it is okay to announce and re-direct). Just copy the link and paste.

P.S. My final photos might of the rigging on the mast, a resin-casted hull, and maybe some weathering around the ship.....we'll see :wave_1:

Thanks Dan.....there are a few things I need to improve on like working w/PE, watch how to place added accessories, but more importantly......Test-fit!! :doh_1: :doh_1:

I would like to make an small announcement, in that I will be working on JMSDF-ships Hurana DDH-141 & Shirane DDH-143. I will be doing Hyuga DDH-181 & Kaga DDH-184. :woo_hoo: :thumbs_up_1:

AlMost there.....well at least until I make a hull for the ship, we'll see, but this is the Tamiya 'fictional carrier' DDV-192 Ibuki an Izumi-Class DDH with a sky-ramp and many F-35B's. A Fun kit to make, and with the addition of Artist Hobby making a PE set for this kit and a little research on your part will make an Outstanding kit! On my part a little more patience with catwalks (aft) and weapons SeaRam on island, it came out quite well.

Comments on ship besides what I mentioned would be appreciated.

Decals on the deck!! Check out the support on JBD, used the 1/700 GMM 'Nimitz-class' PE just trimmed it down for placement. Might be moving this site to the 'Finished models' side, but not sure how to do that..... Timmy C could you help me with that, also will try to put rigging, weathering (?) {most JMSDF ships are kept pretty 'clean'.....do those ships get dirty?? :thinking: }

YEAH!!!!! :doh_1: :doh_1: Yeah, I know.....didn't see that until I had S-glued the SeaRam to the base and painted and Then took the photo. I might have to pull that forward CRam....its just that the other CRam, back aft....the dome is too short, got mis-cut.....I have to look into it. I think that I should Keep the original weapon system that came with the kit.

Thanks TimmyC and Captain Morgan for the comments. :eyes_spinning:

That’s sort of like Cleavon Little pointing the gun to his head in Blazing Saddles. “No one move or the ****** gets it.”

Okay weather in Cali was a little weird this weekend....rained Sat morning and a little in afternoon, so I did all my spray Sunday morning after coming back from working onboard USS IOWA BB-61. YES, I work on a battleship in San Pedro, doing tours for school groups and a bit of volunteer work as well!! But on to Ibuki....place A/C, weapons and a few 'yellow gear' (although it is white) on deck just for looks but painted FD, island, and hull went Very well........and blue painter tape did the trick!! :jump_1: :jump_1: :jump_1: . I just Wished that this kit had a Full hull....maybe I'll cast a hull from my Izumo-class JMSDF Kaga and fit it onto the ship.... :thinking:

Starboard side of island still needs life raft containers....will try to paint those grey, but a little lighter than rest of hull! Those vents are Really Sticking OUT!! :cool_1: :cool_2:

I just placed tape on the FD so to spray this weekend, after letting FD paint to dry. I was quite taxed taping and being careful as to the netting Around the FD was already glued down so as to get the same color as the hull, around the catwalks and other ladders. As you can see with the meds I needed it took quite awhile.

A small part of FD got missed (painted) but quite happy with results. :thumbs_up_1: The FD tiedowns look good, but dreading the idea that 'sepjic' mentioned about the Hyuga and Izumo kits with their helo deck marking "etched onto" deck.. kind like those old carrier models where the catapults and JBD are 'grooved' on the deck.

Image

It's been a bit warm out here in Califor, but I'm going to let the paint rest before I attach the FD to the hull then finish painting the rest of the carrier... I mean Helo-Destroyer!

Painted the FD and island using Tamiya paints as-per instructions. I also painted (which I never done before) the outline of the ship....did this by hand. Island came out well but left one sponson out (starboard side ECM gear) so as to get the starboard side nav bridge painted. Also got those smoke stacks painted, by hand, glued down the mast permanently, added the CIWS for effect.

Here is the mast.... have not glued it down let except for white glue to check placement of rails, radars, and hatches. Placed, on nav bridge rails on top of the superstructure, masts goes on a bit tight without glue, added another radar set below the original radar of second platform. So far... everything looks good! Added a few A/C for effect.

Also got the sizing of pictures down now.

Obvious holes are where smokestacks will be placed, that whole section painted flat black, so I'll paint the island then add them.
