Good luck with that Mark. It's a kit I always wanted to do so I will be watching but I am bit jaundiced by kits with mega etch sets so I am unlikely to attempt in the near future.

cheers

Wow Mark! Talk about coming back with a "bang"!

This is the way to do it, for sure!

Like Michael, I've always been curious about Tamiya's new tool Yamato, but always intimidated by both it and the AM available and hence stayed away. More than happy to watch you do battle with her though

Mark,

Nice choice and challenge. I have a partial built Musashi sitting on the floor waiting on me. Maybe your build will motivate me.

I don't know why but Tamiya have split the Hull in an unusual way which means some careful Puttying and Sanding to come. Oh what fun....Cheers Mark

I dare say it's to get the shape of the hull at the bow just right!

Very skillful puttying and it'll be gone in no time.

Just amazed at how much is in the boxes!
