Would anyone have detailed pictures or rendering of of the searchlight tower near the stack? I wonder if the lattice work should be open or closed.

Since it pertains here... is Hasegawa doing a 1/700 Nagato as well, to compliment their new 1/350 tooling, or is it solely the Aoshima model in 1/700 plastic. I've heard good and bad about Aoshima's tooling, and so I'm trying to discern what problems might or might not come up.

Gold Medal Models makes a set of 1/350 inclined ladders. They are very nice. Not sure if they are USN pattern, and what the difference between those and IJN would be, but the set is great.

Another question - does anybody have images or details of the AA mountings that were put on top of the turrets later on? Were they 25mm positions, twin, as per Yamato/Musashi?

The Japanese practice of putting canvas bedrolls on exterior surfaces of the superstructure is quite quaint. It's as if the hammock will do anything if the steel behind it can't stop the splinters.

actually, if I recall, those are sandbags, which serve quite well in the role of absorbing frag effect and preventing damage from the frag effect.

The sausage like rolls hanging off the vertical superstructure surfaces are rolled hammocks. The sand bags are piled around the improvised AA mounts on deck, in a fashion similar to sand bag emplacements used in land warfare.

Still, they would have an absorbitive nature for things such as frag effect, instead of it damaging and ricocheting off the metal surfaces. In the case of vertical structures, I guess they work better since they have ties you can just tie them into place and not worry about them shifting or losing sand and causing the whole side to fall off.

The Japanese found out that the bedrolls/hammocks caught fire easily, so they gave up their use as fragment shields on vertical structures.

Been out of town but been meaning to reply on some questions:

Horizontal lines - essentially correct -, the horizontal welds are more prominent, see pic below (igonore the red markings, from another discussion, credit: KMM IJN BB vol)

References, aside from the Futubasha volumes, there are the hard to find Fukui volumes, the new Kure Maritime Museum series on IJN ships from Diamond-Sha Publishing (excellent photos - get the BB book) and perhaps easiest to obtain, the new Profile Morski volume on the Nagatos.

Moderator : I usually state the source of the pictures if it helps now these pics come from Futubasha’s 3D Nagato book I forgot about doing it in my last two posts :doh_1: , sorry about that it won’t happen again.

Lars: you are welcome :wave_1:

They should be much more subtle so that you will overlook them unless you scan for them. They should also exist below waterline, at least on portions of the ship not covered by the massive retro-fitted torpedo bulge.

I like to see a picture of the surface of the retrofitted torpedo bulge.

THere are better photos available of the bulge but I don't have any readily available. This view of Mutsi, 1941 does help, though. Click on the photo for a larger pic. Credit uncertain, either Fukui or SOTW

Here's a few more photos of my Nagato. Slow progress as I take my time with the P.E.
