    Interesting Alex, would like to see that sub one day especially from expert hands like Louis's Smile

    It's not a usual sub, more like a submersible aircraft carrier,and besides we don't have any subs at the expo or......... Question Question

    Absolutely beautiful job on the Yamoto! One of the most realistic ships I have seen, the figures not only gives scale to the ship, they also impart a realism that so many ship modelers don't do. I especially love the genuine wood deck, I don't think I've ever seen one done better. It was always trying to figure out a way to get one that realistic without having to lay down individual boards which would drive me crazy, your way seems so simple and yet so effective!

    Hi Brad Very Happy Very Happy
    Thanks very much for your kind comments...yes I did really enjoy the Yamato build...it had been lying there on the shelf for ages till finally I decided to have a go at the beast....The deck wasn't easy but it was worth it ...it made all the difference...
    Thanks again for your kind comments

    I was just looking through this build thread and WOW is all I can say for the masterpiece that turned out.!!! cheers


    I am confused on the photo though. Are we looking at the stern of the ship? And if so is the ship racing backwards through the water? I hope someone says I am wrong.... confused
