Doesn't this simply make a great looking ship ? First saw this completed at the Telford model show, with another that I can't remember the name of, while like most Japinese cruiser fans would have built this in 1-700, having seen this first hand, and now having a good look around this fine model, it is a very tempting offer to buy one. Come to think of it ----- these new 1-350 light and heavy cruisers with the new up and coming destroyer, there's not many been built so far, certainly haven't seen many on the site. I like the look of this ship, rigging perhaps a little to fine, and some open gaps along edges, these can be a problem especially when the glue goes off and the the two leading edges remain open, I normally place a very small amout of glue, allow to almost go off, then carefully file, the glued plastic acts as a filler, allow to completely dry, then paint as usual. Looking at the bridge with those trasparent windows, I'd be very tempted to place a few figures inside just to see, if they can be seen. Wonderful job with the photoetch, and as you'll know, it can be very difficult building a ship clean, no weathering, huge spaces of rust and over painting, very nice overall finish. Thank you for sharing.

Hi, Alec! "some open gaps along edges"? On my model? Where?

Hello Veniamin - maybe my old eyes are playing up, the bridge doesn't seem to join completely flat against the deck, and bridge assembly starboard, seems to have a join line on the corner. Could you tell me the model length, and the highest point from the stand up to the top mast. Thank you.
