I just got my IJN 1/200 scale Yubari and decided to build her on this thread. I love this ship for 2 reasons, classic Japanese early lines and she was unique. Yubari was built primarily as a test hull for the upcoming gracefully mean CA's. She was meant to prove out the basic hull form that was to be adopted. As such she was a one off ship making her very unique. Surprising she survived till early spring 1944. I am taking a break from Titanic, the zillion motorized vents are killing my interest. I will build Yubari's hull then go back to Titanic. At that time i will finish Yubari then hope to play a bunch a golf as I am sure spring will be here. I purchased the laser cut hull frames, 1st time to build with them. I figure why not, I have built plenty of and will continue to build many more hull I have to cut. Probably a wash between the cost of the laser frames and all the number 11 blades i won't need to use up and it will save a tom of times. Plus I think I will get a feel for how good I really do with cutting my own hull formers. Here are some pics of the parts.
