I've been wanting to put something up on this for a while but wanted to wait until I had everything in hand. The final component came today. This will be a build log chronicling the construction and detailing of Fujimi's 1/350 IJN Kongo.
The build will contain the following:
Fujimi 1/350 IJN Kongo
Fujimi Kongo Deluxe Photo Etch
Fukuya 15cm and 12.7cm brass barrels
Shinsengumi 1/350 wooden deck set (I chose this over Fujimi's due to Shinsengumi's known quality and material in this area)
The Kongo was graciously provided by Dragon USA and I have purchased the supporting materials. When this build log and model is done, I'll consolidate it into a Build Review Feature.
I'll post pictures in a few days as I have to a.) get pictures taken of my community build up for deadline tomorrow, and b.) I've been working like gangbusters on the latest Admiralty instructions...
The Kongo is in a dead heat with the Washington as my favorite ship of all time, so I'm really looking forward to this. Special thanks to Dragon Models USA for the kit and to our own Mark Smith (Gunny) for getting the ball rolling on this project.
More to come...
