    Thanks fluthecrank for Your information. I found 1/500 railings that are alike enough for a 1/480 scale, but for my crawler I'm keeping with my paper railings, not so good as the photoetched but good enough.
    My compliments for Your excellent work. The Yamato is my favorite battleship and in a future long, long away i'd like to build one.

    Sorry Iriera, but I don't know any Italian Forum. The only Italian guys interested in this beautiful hobby that I found are member of this forum. :cry:

    Best, Nando :wave:

    the crane pylon.......

    Dear Friends,

    I just made the cranes pylon, first I wanted to cut it out, but I thought the parts were too narrow............

    So I decided to build the pylon from plastic sprues.................

    the original parts were the pattern for the pylon

    I like that you chose not to do the crane from paper, it always seems to give a boost to the model when you scratch build the crane.

    Keep up the good work

    MY DEEPEST CONGRATULATIONS, FLU!!!!!

    You really made this one, as always, a beautiful model!

    And you also made it clear that, although a daunting project, is not an impossible one.

    Thank you for sharing!
