1/350 Nagato + Lionroar

Recommended Posts

Gentlemen, please find following my build log for Hasegawa's 1/350 Nagato. For ship's details, I am using the Lionroar set, supplemented by Voyager, Veteran Models, KA Models and Flyhawk. This is the Battle of Leyte Gulf version of this famous battleship.

Short build log of one of Nagato's 127mm AA's that was posted at the end of my Yamato build thread, but as they are for this Nagato, thought I should include it here. Right after, please see my progress on the funnel area:

I think that due to your very clean etch work, leaving it unpainted really works. It will certainly be a stunning model.
