Today is Sunday 16th July 2023, more photos on the planking of the upper deck.  The work done is from Saturday 15th July and today 16th July got to really careful as the planking is so thin and you can see alot of cutting thats why you dont rush to get it done no time scale on this job, then back onto the hull.

Tuesday 18th July 2023,  today's posting is still on the planking of the upper main decks both sides are planked just have to carefully cut the the rest of the circle where the main battery sit on have shown with the photos the three positions they will be sitting and also the bridge section alot of work to be done on that over the weeks to come tomorrow I will turn the model over and trim the over size planking and very lightly sand them off, next is back to the hull a few more jobs to do ,the bow to be finished and the stern to be sanded  and painted with primmer then undercoated and full coat after.
  I can tell you from my heart as this is my first ever build of a warship thats made all in wood, I'm really enjoying building just taken my time a few hours aday and 5 mths into the build and I will still not rush the build also many thanks to everyone who have posted comments thank you so much.   :-)) :-)) :-) [size=78%] [/size]

"I'm really enjoying building".  That's all that really matters in the end.  But you are also producing a lovely model and we are all enjoying watching it emerge from that pile of wood.  Keep it up!   :-)) :-))

A tip for smoothing the planks is to use a Stanley Knife blade as a cabinet scraper at about 45 degrees. Long strokes and it will very gradually take the high points off and give a satin smooth appearance. An observation which may be incorrect is that I notice you are planking the quarterdeck where the aircraft sit - I may have miss-read but wasn't that area a steel deck, could be wrong.


Keep up the good work a very interesting thread and well done.

Kiyo......speaking the Mother tounge where IJN Yamato was built, you may have knowledge as to why the Teak planked decking was not extended to the stern Quarter Deck, or the Forepeak Deck?


My only knowledge of a comparable Ship is BB63 the Missouri, where her decking extended to both extremities Fwd & Aft....I walked the length of her & confirm the Teak decking was in 1987, kept in superb condition


From images, it appears that the Royal Navy vessels of somewhat similar or and earlier vintage also had the Teak decking to both extremities

Derek
I do not have much knowledge to the point about the planking you referred .... :-X  Give me some time to research into.. O0
But this tendency could be seen in (scout) plane operation decks in many major IJN ships like heavy cruisers and battleships.
1; IJN battleship Ise in her final configuration. modified to operate more planes...namely "Battle carrier"??
2; IJN heavy-cruiser Takao, damaged seriously by UK sub in July 1945.
Sorry for a bit of deviation from your Yamato, wallace.!! :-X

While not an expert on naval ships I would imagine the lack of teak decking in these areas is due to the dirty nature of the activities taking place. The forepeak has the anchor handling machinery and would be subjected to mud and rust from the anchor chains, both leaving any teak decks in poor condition. The aft deck where there is aircraft would be likely subjected to oil and petrol during maintenance of the aircraft as there doesn't appear to be any hanger space for this. Steel decks would be easier to clean after any spills.

Hi to the above follower's some great photo's and comments, Geoff here is my answer to your question when I was doing the planking each strip were the same length and around 1/2 mm thick so had to be really careful, when the planking was set into place I left them over night until I had done the stbd side then had to cut out the shape for the aft main gun the photos this all the planking done will show you that I did not plank the quarterdeck.Geoff thanks for following my build and love everyones comments. :-)) :-)) :-)) :-))

Looking very good like IJN Yamato with the bridge in addition to the powerful hull, wallace.!! :-))
The recessed part in the middle of bridge is said for anti-blast measure coming from tremendous
 firepower of 46cm (18 .11inch) main batteries on the main deck. O0

Todays is Monday 14th Aug 23 been a few days since my last post, but I have been working on the model every day on the building of the bridge just about 100 bits to clean and prime and let all dry and then fitting, taking some apart as I was not happy with and then having to clean again and prime etc but its coming alone.
This model has really tested me but I have really enjoying the build and I hope you are all happy as well.
