Hi All!
I haven't sent any massages for a long time because of several reasons.Blushing

Recently I have started building a cut model of the IJN Aircraft Carrier Akagi in 1/144 scale and attch here some photos of it.

We will have a small annual exhibition of war ship models in the near future, and I am going to display some models there. This cut model is one of my models.

This is not a kit but an original one. I guess I will not finish this model at the beginning of the exhibition. I can only build a flight deck and a bridge as far as possible in this time.

The completed cut model with a hull, a lift and other structures will be build for next year. I'll occasionally sent reports here

A Japanese proverb says that Talk about next year and the devil will laugh ( God knows what may happen next year).Laugh

Best Regards,
Yutaro

Hope life is treating you well.

Really interesting to see a scratch built model starting to take shape of such a large ship.

You have made a really good start to your build.

Hope the model exhibition goes well for you.

Happy modelling

Very nice work as usual. I see you have been eating those octopus/squid balls again to get your planks, a good way to recycles packaging though

Hi Andy!
Thank you for a comment on my post. Fortunately I found a provider who sells unused wood dishes for TAKOYAKI (Octopus balls). Otherwise I have to eat a lot of TAKOYAKI and will become more fat.

Hi Riff-raff!
Thank you for your comment. I'm very happy that you follow my diary.

If you build DeAGO's AKAGI, I am afraid there are some pit falls in building explanations (The kit is a good model itself).

I hope that you will refer to my posts on "Akagi model discussion" before building.

Best Regards,
Yutaro
