BigGrin Hi All

The deck has been added to the hull and the furniture started to be added.

The funnel was fitted to the lower gun island then the gun safety bars were added to the main gun pits after this all the assembled parts were undercoated and the 1st coat of IJN kure grey sprayed on. Another coat will go on tomorrow.

More soon.

BigGrin Hi All

Well she is done I think. Not for the faint hearted as there is tons of tiny etch to deal with but the results speak for themselves.

A kit with challenges but even bigger rewards might even get the Musashi kit to go with her one day.
