Until now, I didn’t wash the photo-etched parts, especially with detergent. The manual says that you had better wash it before painting. I think that there is no problem because I always use metal primers. Once, I wash it with a household dishwasher. I wonder if it will rust?
There used to be such a tool as an etching vendor to bend the parts of the AFV model. To work the photo-etched parts of the current ship model is not very useful for them. The only way is to work perseverance with tweezers and thinner pliers.
Photo-Etched parts construction on the rear deck is also finished. Although it will resemble past examples, I will try to paint warship colors by looking at the timing. If I use a wood deck seal and avoid masking work, you must divide the paint works by all means.
I intended to stick the deck stick tightly; seals have been turned up from place to place. I pasted it with Superglue. It may be better to change the tone of the seal. I have adhered to the main parts, such as the bridge. I like it quite a lot because this work is increasingly shaped.
When fitting the main gun, the poly cap was pretty brutal. At the time, the battleship designer probably had trouble arranging various parts. Moreover, there is not much space, and it tends to interfere. Of the six gun turrets, 12 guns are overloaded.
Next week I am moving my apartment, so I wonder if I can update it for a while.
I found a battleship Yamashiro that I had forgotten about a month. The handrail had to be glued while bending a lot of places, which was difficult. Finally, 35 25mm machine guns will be mounted on the deck. Because it is adhesive to the wood deck seal, it will not be attached unless it is Super Glue. Let’s paint the warship color to the machine gun beforehand.
Speaking of which, I forgot to fix the hose reel mold that was left when I applied the wood deck seal. I try to wrap a 0.1 mm copper wire around a plastic 1 mm diameter round bar and bond it with the photo-etched parts.
The lime green Yogibo Midi and the light gray Yogibo Roll Max. Probably these are valuable relaxing items. Watching a movie with my wife and lying sideways alone is very comfortable. As I bought it for the first time, I can not compare it with the cheaper bead cushions of other companies, but it takes a long time to break down, the outer cover is strong and washable, and bead cushions can be added.
The battleship Yamashiro was finally completed. This battleship plastic model was about 30 cm when assembled. Battleship Yamashiro is a Fuso-class dreadnought battleship. The Fuso-type battleship was built on two ships: Fuso and Yamashiro. It is the next class of the Kongo class Battleship before the Ise class battleship.
During the Pacific War, Yamashiro was slow in ship speed, so It could not work with the task force, and there was little opportunity for success. The battleships were proposed to be remodeled into aircraft carriers when the four main carriers were lost in the Battle of Midway. It was a candidate for major remodeling but was abandoned because the construction took too long.
At the end of the Pacific War, the US forces landed in the Philippines, part of the absolute defense zone set by the Imperial Japanese Army and Navy. The Battle of Leyte occurred to attack the US Army in October 1944. Yamashiro was bombarded by bullet fire by the terrific radar shooting from US battleships and cruisers. Finally, four torpedoes hit and sank. It has been said that there was a crew of nearly 1,500 because the aircraft gun personnel was increased, and the survivors were only ten people.
In the final stage of the Battle of Leyte, the Night Battle of the Surigao Strait is said to be the last battle in which battleships were bombarded by each other. The force was two battleships, one cruiser, and four destroyers called the Nishimura fleet. It was an operation that had little chance of winning. As a result, only the destroyer Shigure barely survived, but everything else sank. However, it is difficult to understand the war situation of other troops at this time. It cannot be said that the decision to rush at the time was a mistake.
The Battle of the Sea of Leyte was a total sea power war of the rest Imperial Japanese Navy from October 20 to 25, 1944. As a result, it can be said that the Imperial Japanese Navy was almost destroyed. Later, innumerable discussions were made, and many books were published. The odds of losing are high, but there seems to be a theory that winning is possible. Both domestic and foreign interest is high because IJN received a blow at the end. I want to read related books a little more.
I looked closely at the manual. I think it’s a bonus, and there were parts of a US PT boat. It is a good job that the PT boat attacked the Japanese fleet in the night battle has entered. Even though there are only eight parts, it is quite a good mold. It is a waterline model.
The PT boat is famous for being the captain of the later US president, Lt. Kennedy. That PT boat collided with the destroyer Amagiri and sank. The crew swam to the island, and Lieutenant Kennedy was awarded as a great contributor to the crew’s rescue.
I’ve been making only Fujimi kits recently, and I think it would be pretty cool after completing the Aoshima’s Imperial Japanese Navy battleship. I think sandbags are stacked around the triple-mount AA gun and painted dark yellow.
I am interested in models of tanks, airplanes, ships, military figures, I build them little by little when I feel like it. I am also interested in the history of war. My starting is Tamiya’s Military Miniature series in elementary school.
From elementary school through university students repeatedly suspend and restart my modeling, it’s about 25 years of this hobby’s history.
From February 2007 I was quietly doing a site called “Miniature-Arcadia”. It is being transferred to this blog with the same name from December 2016. My update pace is uneven, but please come to see me here occasionally.
