A sort of history
Very nice barry, a lot of work has gone in to them.
Wow, Barry, those are great close-up shots!
When I try to tackle them in the future I hope you'll open your heart to a poor bloke and tell me all your secrets in making such great builds...too bad there is no Emoticon for a sniveling, pleading fellow! :lol:
I do hope you'll post some more shots when you can. The two Zios I got did not come with any instructions or illustrations so I could use all the help I can get from what great work you've made of them.
Thanks for posting the photos!!
Holiday chill out
Had to try doing something on holiday another one to finish DN's freebie all I got done tho
Nice one, Barry!
You will, of course, keep taking photos for us, right?
Savage for junkies
Jim & Rob fellow junkies
Savage for junkies
Wow, outstanding work, Barry!
Fisted the first gun, huh? Isn't paper modeling wonderful?
Really top notch build, Barry; thanks for the many photos! :lol:
Took a couple more photos too similar to put in the normal thread and the idiot who dry fitted the rails did not notice they were not sitting down properly.
Really nice Barry
There is something "foxy" about destroyers - isn't it?
I agree with with Roman.
Those last set of photos really shows off the sleekness of that design, and the superb details you included in this fantastic build!
Thanks for the extra photos, Barry!
Fuso, Takao and Savage
No good reason for taking these photos except it gives a comparison, I did not realise how big Japanese cruisers of this class were.
In a rough sea, how do the crew stay on board - on deck?
I think they hang on with their teeth actually
In rough weather they would sling life lines on the weather decks. On thse would be short lengths of rope known as lizards, these would be held on the lifeline with thimbles. You go out on deck and in between green waves you would grab one and hang on for your life. If you could not hang on 10 to 1 your dead, you would then make your way to the next lifeline to get to the area wanted.
Rough or what :cry:
Look no water
inspired by Leif I suddenly needed someting in a big scale for a couple of days for a change. I decided to the B538 freebie I chose this one because I thought the camo scheme would cover a lot of mistakes (does actually).
I take my hat off to the airplane guys you need to be contortionist for this sort of thing. I managed to hack out the control panel and then decided that with my hamfistedness I would put the rest of the details in later thank goodness, they would have been flat by now.
The next time I do this if ever the formers will be 5 ply!!
Strictly for laughs
Still trying to learn to build planes I decided to make a wire sandwich for the struts before attempting to fix nything permanently. The chin intake covers a multitude of sins
Very nice and in such a short time as well, great stuff
Keep at it and look forward to the rest :roll:
Very nice work, mate. Looks like a fun project, and really a super job of putting her together!
I downloaded this model too, but I haven't printed it out yet. Seeing how well she looks in your build, well, you know, it makes one want to start her right away. :lol:
Like Rob said, please post more photos updates as you go along.
Your construction looks great. I wanted to ask, I have been all over Ripper's site and could not find the version you are building. Could you post a link to that particular bird?
Again, congratulations on your build.
