    I'm just going to burn all my card and sit and cry in my shed. This is one of the most amazing models I have seen of any media anywhere including museums. Thank you for sharing the pictures now when the model I am working on goes wrong (they always do ) I can think if you can do this from scratch I can sort out a simple kit. Many thanks again ,now to the shed . Merry Holiday of choice

    ASTOUNDING! I've been on the USS Missouri, before she decommissioned....again and that is absolutely astounding.

    What a paper model that would make. w00t:thumb:

    John, that's utterly amazing. Great detail work.

    How did you do the scale railings? I'm doing a 1/100 Arizona right now and I love the looks of your rails. I'd like to borrow the technique. :)

    Hi Eibwarrior,

    The relings are just made of copperwire and fishwire.

    Congrat on POTW
    Super amazing work. jawdropjawdrop

    I saw alot of books of Yamato in Tokyo. I mostly decided to design/build this cutaway turret. But the ton of details made me to hesitate.
    Very nice model. Thanks for sharing.
