1/200 scale Yamato
« on: July 08, 2017, 06:29:40 PM »

HI Guys with the on going building work and me doing other things not a lot of building of models has taken place. This afternoon I managed to do a little on this next project first job to remove all raised mouldings in  the hull. It may be a while before you see any more pictures need to finish the F/Boat first.

Even at 1/200 scale that is a very large hull you have there sir.

Thanks guys it will be while before you see any major progress. I have invested in some nice brass etch for this model and also some very nice brass gun barrels. Should be ok with the 1/200 mighty Mo.

Just a small  update. Prop shafts fitted also four drive motors into the hull. I am using a building adhesive to glue down the metal motor mounts. I have used this before on PT BOAT 596 with very good results may be more pictures tomorrow.

All the motors are fixed in place and tested. The prop shafts are made from the following Outer shafts are 1/8 dia brass and the inner shafts are 3/32 brass. The outer shafts enter the hull into a box section at the end of this is a round tube this is glued to the box section and  a cap is fitted to the box section see pictures.

Just a few pictures showing how many clamps are needed to hold the deck in position until permanent fixings are fitted. Timber braces will be fitted  to keep the hull straight  and decks will be held in place with magnets. Other picture shows connections to main rudder and auxiliary rudder  both operate hopefully will improve turning circle. 40 FM radio fitted to this model 2 channels only rudder two ESC via mixer.

Looking good. I had one quite a few years ago, really wished I had kept it. Especially as now you can get upgrade parts. Looking forward to the build.

Stan,

Thanks for the pics.

Nice tidy layout no "rats" there.

Looking at the rudder linkage and wondering why the 'kink' in the line, strength?.

The reason for the offset in the rudder linkage is due to me not getting the servo in the right postion. Even with this offset it causes no problem with moving the two rudders.

Model taken to our home water for first sea trials no tests done due to the lead acid battery being flat silly me should have checked that last night more to follow.
