Hi all, Currently building Fujimi's 1/350 IJA Transport Submarine Maru Yu as Maru Yu 1. The kit features a transparent side piece to allow for an interior but gives little to detail ot with. I'm attempting to scratch build as much as I can but there is scarce information outside of one or two images on the internet. Wondering if anyone knows what points 2 and 3 are in the blueprints I've found. 2 looks like crew quarters but I couldn't be sure. Any information or links at all regarding this submarine would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
I had this kit in the stash for some time. The initial plan was to sell it to someone, but since that never materialised, I decided to try my hand on the natural metal undersurfaces. The kit went together more or less OK, I had to trim the instrument panel to be able to glue both fuselage halves. I painted the cockpit with RLM 79, while picking up some details in flat black. The model was first painted with RLM 70 for the upper surfaces, and when dry, I gave two coats of white to the lower surfaces, so the metallic colour could have a good grip. The yellow leading edge bands were masked and painted in yellow. Then the model was glosscoated, and the decals were applied. They were a bit thick and tended to stick to the surface, but I was able to position them properly. Up next, an RAF Mustang Mk.III from Tamiya with Revell decals.
