Thank you Nick for your kind words. :wave_1:

I had a really good time with this Groupbuild. Maybe we should do another one soon? I'm game. :cool_1:

Thanks Nick, this was fun! My first group build and my first scratch build. I was not able to finish completely, but I'm happy with what I've done so far. It's amazing how work can get in the way of model building.

My Tatsuta build is down to finishing the funnels, scratch building the triple torpedo tube mounts, adding boats, deck details, portholes and rigging. The hardest part of this build was deciding how to fabricate alot of the parts, and guessing at details where there is little or no documentation. This is a great way to build appreciation for the folks who design those great resin and injection kits we want. More pix to follow as the build wraps up.

Last message went out a little early. The first shot is the Aoshima Nagara with my Tatsuta for a sense of size. Attached are a few more detail shots.

Thanks Nick! The deck is oak sealed with Squadron green putty, sanded smoothed & resealed with primer. I used several brushed-on coats of Tamiya XF-79 Linoleum Brown, then glued down Flyhawk's brass deck strips. The deck weathering, I'm embarassed to say, is little more than putty dust brushed into the grain.

This weekend, I should have the 3.1" AA gun and torpedo tubes done...kit bashed leftovers from the Aoshima Nagara. More pix will follow as progress is made.

My Kagu Maru conversion has found a little more paint and some cargo (unpainted). Cargo winches are scratchbuilt, with resin copies. At this point I think the only kit parts are the hull halves, aft house, gun tubs and bandstands (and even they're resin).

Next order of business will be the front of the deck house which will come from the kit part with a little modification.

There's obviously some great skill shown in these builds!

How often do group builds happen? Whenever? Or every few months?

I mostly scratchbuild, but have a few kits stashed away, if it has to be a kit build.
