Started another one: New tool Yamato. Could not decide between Pontos and Lion Roar so I didn't! I have about 75 hours in so far. All parts have been removed from sprues, cleaned up and organized. I also did major work on the hull seem based on work I saw here by Koppalakki.

Hi Joe! I'm not a new modeler but I am very new to ship modeling. I have been a member of this board for a few years but rarely post as I don't feel I have anything to add to most threads. I am impressed by the work that everyone has posted in this area of the board. I have to say that when I saw this thread and opened it up, I was blown away. I absolutely love the organization that is going into this build. It is this behind-the-scenes look that a newbie like me can learn from. Like the others, I will be following along. I am looking forward to what you have in store.

Who cares for organization when you can embrace the chaos! :big_grin:

Good luck with your project Joe!

Here is some more progress. When I add brass sheet decking to plastic I like to drill several holes in the plastic to allow the glue to get around. I use thin CA for the laminates.

The turret barbettes were clamped to the waterline divider and glued with thin Tamiya plastic cement. This ensured the deck would sit down properly.
