    WOW I am soooo jealous. I have never done a card model before but am building a 1/200 wood model of the Bismarck and wanted to do the 1/200 plastic Yamato but go put off by people saying it is a very old kit and requires a lot of messing around. But I have now seen this card model and have been considering doing it but am very worried as I am a noob. I have a simple by plane I am going to practice on but am wondering if I should eve think about the Yamato after this? What do you think, I will take it slow and read the instructions but do you think I will just not be able to handle it?

    Go for it! Have fun building it! And if you totally mess up on a part... all you have to do is reprint the parts and try it again.

    Halinskis Yamato is one of the most difficults models I tryed to build. It needs much experiance. It's not good idea to build Yamato like a first, second nor third card model. It's my second attempt to build Yamato, after many models I still think it's very difficult.

    My best models:

    USS Essex, 1:300, Maly Modelarz.


    Akitsushima, 1:200, Answer.


    Zuikaku, 1:200. GPM.


    afk_matrix I'm sorry for late answer, If You decided to build Yamato I wish You luck and satisfaction :)

    The thread is going to be continued as soon as possible.

    Cheers !

    PS: Sorry for my english :oops:

    :twisted:Hi Hi, Highlander

    pardon me for asking,

    How will you intend to make the Yamato main mast.?
    1) Plastic rod
    2) metal rod
    3) others ?

    im a Halinski fan too. seeking your High advice.

    Nicolelew, I don't know which material I'll use, yet. I think that plastic is easier.
  16. This almost looks like it has been photo shopped to make it perfect. I have never seen such perfect joints. I have been building on and off for 30 some odd years and have never achieved this level of perfection.

    I would like to know how you managed it. Please share your techniques on getting such perfectly clean joints.
