Wow, that is a lot of brass! It's looking great and well worth the effort.

Wow, is this an aftermarket set?

Pretty impressive build of the pagoda-bridge...

What the hell, this is amazing.

Are you building the lower hull from scratch? Can you post more information about what we are seeing and what the plan is?

It looks amazing.

It‘s built from Fujimi's new kit. Sorry for letting you misunderstand. I placed it beside KAJIKA‘s 1/700 KONGO(I have to make a scratch for it) for comparison. The Kongo Class battleships have the same characteristic in strakers so they are extreamly alike. (KAJIKA‘s Kongo is highly accurate in strakers)

Thanks Jose!

And, some new progress!

According to the fitting plan of battleship Kongo 1944 and battleship Haruna 1934 there are two pairs of rollers beside the anti-wind anchors. For which I made these rollers on my Hiei considering that all Kongo Class battleships have these settings, no direct evidence though for the lost of Hiei‘s fitting plan and no clear photo.

rollers for paravane

I heat the frame of the kit making it thin lines to make these eaves above scuttles.

Are you building a lower hull for the Kajika Kongo ca 1914? I am very interested to know how you did this. Do you have plans for the lower hull? Id like to try the same and build Kongo in original shape.

You could use the lower hull from one of the Fujimi kits and just cut down the very stern.

Blisters though? I dont think they are comparable, as ship had added blisters and lengthened stern. Or?

:doh_1: You are absolutely correct. I don't know what I was thinking. Reducing the blister on the hull will take some work and scratch-building. I do think it can be done. Reducing the stern is much easier, IMHO.

Here is what I found on the internets on forums where my Google translator is completely failing. :)

pascalemod, what I did on my Arizona kitbash viewtopic.php?f=59&t=165105 to make a Tennessee pre-upgrade was to cut the bulge out 1 at a time leaving a wide hole, trimmed the hole so both ends were square, put a backer strip across the top of the backside of the hole for a .040"(1mm) plastic plate to fill the hole. did the starboard side 1st using 3 shorter plates but did the portside using just 1 plate. waited a day or so before carving, scrapping & sanded to shape.
