Military Model - Yamato 1:200 Hi all I'll try to show how I am building hull of Yamato - Halinski '04 in 1:200 scale. This is my second attempt to build one, the first was not good, twisted and with colapsed plating :cry: then crushed by accident :cry: .That's all I remaining. I've started off with gluing the frames on 1m long, 12 cm large of 2 mm cardboard strips (belts?) and cut it out. For flat part of the bottom I've designed a... 'subplating' large piece of 2 mm cardboard. Before that I cut out special gaps in the frames. To get non twisted hull I made something I call 'the drydock' :grin: It's made from the rest (relic?) of frames cardboard. The pictures shows it better, than my inexpert explanation. Why it's done for? It's going to be an exellent support for futur steps of build. The framing fixed to my 'drydock' won't be twisted (warped). The framing is not yet glued. To be continued. Cheers Leszek.
