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. If I use a wood deck seal and still avoid masking work, you will have to divide paint works by all means. Although it will be similar to past examples, I will try to paint warship colors by looking at the timing.
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 more and more shaped.
When fitting the main gun, the poly cap was pretty hard. Moreover, there is not much space and it tends to interfere. At the time, the battleship designer probably had trouble arranging various parts. 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, it seems that 35 amount of 25mm machine guns will be mounted on the deck. Because it is adhesive to 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. It is very comfortable to be able to watch a movie with my wife and to lie sideways alone. 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. Probably these are useful relaxing items.
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 two ships, these names are Fuso and Yamashiro. It is the next class of Kongo class Battleship, before the Ise class battleship.
At the time of the Pacific War, Yamashiro was slow in ship speed, so It could not work with the task force and there was not much opportunity for success. It is proposed that the battleships be remodeled into aircraft carriers when the four main carriers are lost in the Battle of Midway. At this time it was a candidate for major remodeling but was abandoned because the construction period took too long.
At the end of the Pacific War, the US forces landed in the Philippines, which is 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, the survivors were only 10 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 with 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. At a later date, innumerable discussions have been made and many books have been published. The odds of losing are high, but there seems to be a theory that there’s a possibility of winning. Both domestic and foreign interest is high because IJN received a blow at the end. I would like to read related books a little more.
I looked closely at the manual, I think it’s a bonus, 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 8 parts, it is a quite 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 has been awarded as a great contributor to the crew’s rescue.
I think that sandbags are stacked around the triple mount AA gun. Painted in dark yellow. Recently I’m making only Fujimi kits, and I think it would be pretty cool after completed the Aoshima’s Imperial Japanese Navy battleship.
I am interested in models of tanks, airplanes, ships, military figures, I build it 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 the elementary school.
From elementary school through university students repeatedly suspend and restart my modeling, it’s about 25 years of this hobby’s history.
Born in February 1970, I live in Tokyo. 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 here occasionally.
