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!!

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:

So a few things that I want to share pix with and ideas on the Ibuki kit, but first, even though it is a completed model, I want to show a few more things like doing rigging on masts, weathering, and a lower hull.

I do want to do rigging on the masts, radio antennae using such rigging, but have never done it before :newbie: . So I purchased a couple of different brands, one way of doing rigging, that I heard of, is using fly-fishing line, so I purchased some (ehh)expensive thread, I also bought Mig rigging to compare, but saw a YouTube video of somebody using Ulschi (sp) line. The thread is Veevus at 16/0 and 8/0 thickness (don't know what that means, but seller says it was the thinnest), the Mig rigging is @ 0.02 and 0.01mm, the Ulschi, I'm holding off to see which I prefer.

I also wanted to use the AK International weathering 'paints' (?), I want to do those for quite awhile. And I have AK has the Naval Weathering in sets 1 & 2, with various 'solutions'. I do have a couple of 'test "hulks"' that I have from previous builds that I will test the on. Hopefully, I can show both on this side of the site.

Lastly, I want to mention that Tamiya 1/700 Ibuki kit is a GREAT kit...to add more detail adding the PE for this kit (that I have already mentioned) adds A Lot, but in lacks the lower hull for the ship. Thanks to 'Spejic' who sent me several lower hulls for some of the ships I'm building, so here are a few pixs of the hull....

I also added brass rod to the struts, I have always had those plastic struts Break on me!! :censored_2: , the brass color is a combo of gloss black undercoat follow-on by Model Master - Brass (enamel).

I do want to, again, thank 'spejic' for the assistance with the lower hull, but in addition those hulls were all wrapped separately, with associated gear....rudder, screws, fins, and a few hulls with sonar domes.

I will continue to show the rest of the updates...soon.
