BATTLESHIP YAMASHIRO 1944 AOSHIMA 1/700 BOX PACKAGE Ship modeling after a long time. This time I will try to make Aoshima’s battleship Yamashiro. I bought a detail upset of the photo-etched parts and wood deck sheets.

BATTLESHIP YAMASHIRO 1944 AOSHIMA 1/700 MAKING 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?

BATTLESHIP YAMASHIRO 1944 AOSHIMA 1/700 MAKING There are a few similar parts of the main gun. The mold has improved as the muzzle is open from the beginning, the parts specified by the manual is better molding.

BATTLESHIP YAMASHIRO 1944 AOSHIMA 1/700 MAKINGThere used to be such a tool as an etching vendor to bend the parts of the AFV model. In order to work the photo-etched parts of the current ship model, it is not very useful for them. The only way is to work perseverance with tweezers and thinner pliers.

BATTLESHIP YAMASHIRO 1944 AOSHIMA 1/700 MAKING 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.

BATTLESHIP YAMASHIRO 1944 AOSHIMA 1/700 MAKING I mounted a bridge and a chimney to check the feeling. It is strange unless putting main gun turrets on board.

BATTLESHIP YAMASHIRO 1944 AOSHIMA 1/700 MAKING The warship color is being painted. I thought that the handrail would be finished better than painting with the brush all over from the beginning, I blew the airbrush.

BATTLESHIP YAMASHIRO 1944 AOSHIMA 1/700 PAINTING I am nervous when sticking a wooden deck seal.

BATTLESHIP YAMASHIRO 1944 AOSHIMA 1/700 PAINTING 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.

BATTLESHIP YAMASHIRO 1944 AOSHIMA 1/700 PAINTINGWhen 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. 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.

BATTLESHIP YAMASHIRO 1944 AOSHIMA 1/700 PAINTING 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.

BATTLESHIP YAMASHIRO 1944 AOSHIMA 1/700 PAINTING 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.

YOGIBO MIDI AND YOGIBO ROLL MAX ARRIVED The other day, Yogibo, a beaded cushion, arrived. It is funny that it’s larger than the refrigerator if I put the two together.

YOGIBO MIDI AND YOGIBO ROLL MAX ARRIVEDThe 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.
