Hi All!
I have not sent any posts for a long time. In Japan, we also have COVID19 pandemic, and so I have had severe situation and no time to build any models before. Recently, we are almost forced to stay home, I can use a few time to build some models.

I guess that DeAGOSTINI Japan may feels this situation a chance to sell their part work series. (This is just my own imagine!) They started some new series at the beginning 2021. One of the such series is a 1:250 model of DDH IZUMO(いずも), a helicopter carrier destroyer of Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force.

Someone who are interested in this model, please refer to the URL below.

https://deagostini.jp/izu/

I made my mind to start building this model and applied for this program to DeAGOSTINI Japan.They sent me No.1 parts from DeAGOSTINI Japan the other day.(No.1 ,2) I will post the building log here.

I made two models of DDH IZUMO before. One is 1:700 cruising model with old IZUMO.(No.3,4)

The other is a 1:48 diorama of IZUMO where F35B is located on her. There are some vehicles on IZUMO(No.5), I made two fullscratched models for the diorama. One was fire engine(No.6) and the other was Aerial work platform(No.7). The DeAGOSTINI model includes have such vehicles, I am looking forward to see them.(No.8,9,10)

I am going to sent building log No.1 soon.

Best regards,
Yutaro

Hi All!
I send the first log of building DDH IZUMO.
They sent me No.1 magazine and parts(No.1) the other day. All parts are pre-painted and pre-decaled, so there are no more battle against smell of thinner.
The hull of this model is pre-molded diecast and plastic, so there are no more battle against POWDER like YAMAO and AKAGI models.(No.2,3)
No.1 parts includes one helicopter(SH-60K).(No.4,5)
There is LED gimmick on the flight deck. I attached optical fibers at the flight deck parts.(No.6.7)
I did No.1. (No.8)
Best Regard,
Yutaro

Hi All!
DeAGOSTINI Japan send us two magazines fortnightly. So I have to spend one week end time for just waiting.

I try to enhance the models of SH-60K ( Patrol helicopter ) and CV22 (Ospray). (No.1)

They are 1:250 models and pre-painted with decals.(No.2)

I put "washing" on them. It is a kind of paint technique to enhance the shadow of the mold or ditch on small models.(No.3,4)It makes small models more realistic.

I put enamel thinner with a small mount of black enamel paint on the surface of the models and wipe off excess thinner with cotton. (No.5,6,7)

Best Regards,
Yutaro
