I look forward to seeing your log, the Akagi is a stunning looking ship and will build into a fantastic model.

Good luck

BigGrin Hi Tigerace

The Akagi was built at the Kure arsenal shipyard so,

Tamiya's IJN Kure Grey XF 75 will be good for the hull/superstructure,

below the waterline Tamiya's Hull red XF 9 is a good match,

You will also need Tamiya's Linoleum deck brown XF 79 for some of the decks.

Of course you will need other colour's for the aircraft ect.

Regards

AndyCool

BigGrin I generally use P38 car filler as it sands so well, I have also used the Ronseal wood filler [2 part like the P38] but I still think the P38 sands better and gives a smoother finishCool

Looking forward to a new Akagi build log, I have just received the second pack myself. I will be waiting until I have most the packs required for planking before I start or until my will cracks whichever comes first
