@Dan,

Thx, Dan. Didn‘t thought about it. If I search for Japanese command flags they all pop-up. The banner I will check as suggested.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

Best,

Jack

Here is an overhead of the outside deck at the Yamato Museum. This might actually the the color of the deck in April 1945.

I suspect you are right. From ground level the wood is greyish in color. If anything it might have been a bit darker if it had indeed been darkened by rubbing soot on it. Here is a better resolution photo I just 'grabbed' - behold the Yamato - as you approach her from the air in your SBD bomber ... :wink:

Weathered cypress:

A note to all the people who produce yellow or tan colored Aftermarket wooden deck sticks, the color of weathers wood is typically grayish, not yellow or tan. Weathered teak would be quite similar to weathered cypress.

interesting article on the yamato design https://warshipprojects.com/2018/04/24/ ... s-genesis/ I decided to bought a Shinano from fujimi (I'll do it as a completed aircraft carrier),a fujimi musashi that I'm going to use for a n°111 yamato and a super yamato from fujimi.

What about passenger liners with pine decks?

How good are fujimi yamato/A-150 super yamato model? I intend to use the musashi commission for a n°111 hull and the A-150 for the n°798 one(I'll use some of the A-150's AA for the n°111) and got to wonder why isn't shinano here too since it was going to be a somewhat improve yamato at first

What do you guy think of the 2nd edition of the anatomy of the ship on the yamato? For me,I think it's good but it seem like the number of torpedo that hit the ship on her final mission varry a lot and regarding it's final AA configuration,I've found this pic and I somewhat have problem regarding this one :

The pictures you posted above represent the most recent reconstruction of Yamato's final deck AA configuration, based on surveys of the wreck. They are the most accurate, in my opinion.

The key is the second pair of AA machine gun nests aft of Turret #3 on the flight deck. Those are missing on all reconstructions done before a detailed survey of the wreck discovered them 15-20 years ago.

About the same time the discovery of a B-29 surveillance photo taken at 1200 Noon on April 6, 1945 also helped to shed light on the final AA set up.

Then there is this March 1945 photo of Yamato being bombed:

Here is the B-29 photo from April 6, 1945 - you can see the shadow of the AA mounts if you look carefully:

didn't thought you were still active,great job on your yamato model by the way (also,would a "armor upgraded" yamato be different from the real one?), thanks for answer and floating sandbox got a nice yamato model to sink too (I enjoy putting lot's of bomb on it just for fun or sometimes drop a tsunami on him)

Hi - If you don't mind - please delete the GIANT photo you just dropped into your post because only about 20% is visible on the screen (you need to attach it using the command below the text box).

Also - it is INACCURATE. I actually fixed this photo ages ago (for my own reference), but have no idea where it is now so I can't upload it. The deck configurations on the two prior images upthread are CORRECT. (It is no longer a matter of conjecture - it is the final Japanese analysis. The annoyingly GIANT photo you dropped into your post is obsolete and should not be spread around because it confuses people).

Sorry if I am a bit cranky about this, but I have been trying for over 10 years to stamp out the older, inaccurate diagrams on this board. :big_grin:

Thanks.

got to wonder why are they so much AA variation for the april 1945 yamato,and will the difference between the A-140 F variant be visible or not at a 1/350 scale (I may use the tamiya odel for those one) https://warshipprojects.com/2018/04/24/ ... s-genesis/

Well, since the final AA refit was done just before Ten-ichigo, and no good photos or plans of it survived the war, the older reconstructions were done piece-meal and based on memory of survivors and incomplete information. (The best photos of Yamato and Musashi that survive are from earlier in the war when her deck gun and AA configurations were significantly different).

Once the wreck of Yamato was found in the late 1980s and exploration of it commenced, the missing pieces were filled in and supplemented by diagrams that were found here and there in personal archives of former members of the IJN or their families...

Thanks. Unfortunately, I missed adding 2 additional ten-ichigo AA fire control directors located in between the funnel and the main structure ... there's just so much stuff you need to add to those old Nichimo kits ... :-?
