One small and last update of this weekend: I made the etched walkway around the funnel toward the searchlights. As the etched walkway from TAMYA´s etched set is without railings and pretty simple looking I opted to use KA-MODEL´s one which is much more sophisticated looking but also trickier to build
I spraypainted everything with Kure grey and treated everything with Black glaze and a careful drybrush with light grey. First were the tiny Type 95 Kai 1 machine gun control towers and their inner life
I applied the white painted chrysanthemum crest at the funnel which was carried during Yamato´s last sortie, glued the funnel on top of the base superstructure and fixed all these tiny searchlights and turrets. During this works the etched gangway between the funnel and the outer machine gun controllers broke apart had had to be fixed again but now everything is finished.
