  1. I love everything about this! The build, finish, figure, and photography, all first class. Well done on the translucent effect of the wings as well. Cheers, Tom
  2. One more reason to visir such a beautiful place! Cheers, Tom
  3. I built and riveted the H-O kit, it was an absolute pleasure to build, one of my favorites from Z-M (and I’ve built 5 of their releases). One major difference is that it is molded all in grey. Cheers, Tom
  4. I’m content with my HK kit, but I am SO happy that this kit saw the light of day and is in your hands! Cheers, Tom
  5. We’ll see! Some kits are a drop everything else once you open the box kind of project, but I really want to finish my Lancaster and the U-Boat first. When I work on this behemoth however, you’ll see it here! Cheers, Tom
  6. Looking at the kit instructions, you have to drill holes in the deck to add the smaller caliper armament. That actually makes it easier to to backdate, but in my case I’ll have to come up with at least 15 additional single 25mm guns for the 1944 configuration, since the kit only provides 10. Shapeways has them. I wonder if there are other sources? Cheers, Tom
  7. I completely agree Peter, and adding historical and/or personal context about the subject like you do just makes this place that much greater! Cheers, Tom
  8. Looks like a promising start! Cheers, Tom
  9. Just received my copy yesterday. 344 pages of absolute detail. I didn’t expect to see the color perspective illustrations but they are really good. I hadn’t realized that the Yamato’s decks and front turret/guns were painted black in late 1944, but the info and combat photos are in there. I highly recommend this book, and it is definitely better than the first publication. Cheers, Tom
  10. The most comparable I’ve found is Model Ship World: https://modelshipworld.com/ I’ve learned an enormous amount following the builds and tips there, it’s very friendly and supportive, and when I’ve posted my builds there I’ve been gratified by the encouragement. Cheers, Tom
  11. It looks really impressive! Nice work with the rigging and turnbuckles as well. Cheers, Tom
  12. Interesting! This photo shows the port intake proud of the surface, while the smaller is flush. Was this usually the case? Thanks for sharing that. Cheers, Tom
