Back again Sunday evening  26 march after another two hours of very fine sanding I think I have nearly got there so I will go onto the next part of the build, when I put the wood primmer on I will have a good look at the bow to see if it need fine tuning if it does I will be using model putty, the photo's today are showing you from all angles what the bow looks like at the front without being glued most likely fix it into place tomorrow then some more shaping of the next parts to be fixed.I have also put a photo of the next parts to be done.

Yep, spotted your deliberate mistake but decided not to mention it - it was a dry run after all ;D .
Still looking forward to seeing your progress Wallace  :-))

Back again Monday  27 march and more work on the Yamato today  was the fitting of the bow ,the top support and also the tops of both the side to join up with the ones on both sides from the stern,the job with the bow is I had to get it right as the wood glue works fast so I put alot on so I could keep moving it so that it lines up with the whole ship it took me around 30mins etc to get it right so hopefully  tomorrow will tell when all clips tape come off , also I had to shape the end by the bow to get the top two bits to fit I used warm water to make the ends soft   thats why all the clips and tape  are on the model its not glue as of yet the wood has to dry first hopefully tomorrow I can glue  Manaul photo taken to show you what I had to do.

Tuesdays 28March  the next few parts to be put into place onto the Yamato today I removed all tape and clips and please to say all parts held together 100% and the parts that were put into water and mounded into shape  dried well so its all go for gluing the parts that I put into place were the port and stbd. top sides with the portholes showing I also had to do some more sanding to the top of the bow its on the photos from yesterday and also the piece in place from the bow to No 5 support while that all took place and the wood glue has been on for 4hrs I went ahead and cut out No20 clean it up  and just had a little fit I was a bit unhappy with the fit as it wasn't fitting 100% it was just out  I think the 3rd upright from the bow is just a little bit out  tomorrow is another day and I will study it well I hope in the end I can put it right its only a wee bit out I may have to use my putty to fill and when dried sand it in.Hope you can understand todays photos. :-)) :-))

Today 's Build is 5th April  not posted since last Friday so from fri. upto today was cleaning up the model for the big job of the planking on the port and stbd sides of the Yamato also the sanding where I glued the first two metal parts the wood had to be rounded to the parts shape which took ages but its looking good at the moments the past two days been cutting a few of the wood for the planking, done away with the clips to hold them in place have posted a photo of how I'm doing it now its a long jog but to me its worth it,I measure the length for the planking cut the piece mark where its going to be fix to and marked and then drill using a 0.05mm bit then clean up the but side after drilling I then marry the piece to the frames and hold into place with push pins and doing that way does not mess up the planks thats cut it looks all clean the tiny holds will be fill with putty and sanded at a later stage the photos show it all and the pieces I have done will be glue hopefully tomorrow then left to dry for 24 hrs thats why its a long job the planking is  sorry folks not going to rush it because I want to do it right.

Thursday 13 Apr. more planking cut to size and pinned in, hopefully I will start to glue some in place,I have ordered a pin pusher with 7mm pins, so anyone who is following my build of the Yamato use one of the pin pushers to hold the planks in place while the glue sets and can you leave the pins in etc I got one on order and its on its way and I will need it on my next build later on in the year and its called the PRIZN EUGEN and another all wood alot of planking sides and decks,

Wow - already planning your next build.  Do you expect to have Yamato finished before you start Prinz Eugen?  That's a lot of building to squeeze into the next few months!  :-)) :-))
