Yamato turret, 1/72 Takom


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

This is my next maritime project ( or artillery ) ;). It'a a really huge part of plastic and i took me a lot of time to get ready with the paint job and weathering.

I used a lot of technics like oil paints, pigments, dry brush and AK weathering pencils. I hope You like it ;)

An excellent build Pablito and the finish is very good.  I like the way the angles are accentuated by different shades of the Kure grey.

 

I really do like these gun/turret models and I hope more get produced.

 

cheers,

Mike

.....a 1/72 Japanese Navy figure (if any are available?) would be the icing on the cake for scale perspective.

That sounds to be a good idea, if Pablito can source a figure. 

 

As an example, here is a photo of me standing under the main turret of USS Massachusetts, which is smaller than the Yamato turret.

New Takom kit no #5015 - 'A' Turret USS Missouri - WW2 config. Pity its not 'B' or 'C' with 40mm gun tubs.

Can't wait fot it :D But You're right, They could have done the turret with AA guns on the roof.
