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:

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.

If you have a YT account, please make a comment on my video.


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:

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!! ... 02&GC=GD03

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:
