Hi All!
I sent photos of No.4 magazine's building.

I got them last Sunday. They sent me No.4 magazine and No.5 (No.1 and No.2 photos). I wrote about No.4 here and will send another post about No.5 at once.

No.4 includes UH-60J rescue helicopter. Parts of main rotor, tail rotor and tail wing are attached on the body. (No.3)

Although all the parts are pre-painted, cut-off-cross-sections of tail rotor and tail wing parts have to be re-painted by my self. (No.4, 5)

Finally I put "washing" on the helicopter. (No.6)

One metal part is attached on the hull. (No.7)

At this time LED test is undergo. Battery box and connection circuit (No.8) are connected to LED under the flying deck. Turning the switch on, LED lightens and blue lights are supplied through the optical fibers. (No.9,10 and 11)

I have done No.4.

Best Regards,
Yutaro

Hi All!
I sent photos of No.5 magazine's parts building. (No.1)

One metal part is attached on the hull. (No.2) I am afraid of scratch marks of pre-painted parts. To avoid the such damage, the hull is wrapped with towel when it is in storage. (No.3)

No.5 includes optical fibers for LED device. I attach them according to DeAGOSTINI Japan instruction manual. (No.4,5) LED test is undergo. (No.6,7)

Although DeAGOSTINI Japan sent me a parts of flag pole in this No.5 magazine, I think it is too early to attach the flag pole at this time because a lot of building works on the flying deck are remain. (No.8,9)

And I also think that the pole is too thick. I will make another flag pole parts with more thin brass rod in the future. The holes for the original flag pole are filled in and painted. (No.10,11)

The flying deck is also wrapped with towel during storage to avoid scratch marks. (No.12)

I have done No.5.

Best Regards,
Yutaro

Hi All!
At this time, I sent a log about an enhancement on patrol helicopter, SH-60J. I tried making the main rotor to be motorized. I found three kinds of small motors. I selected medium size one.(No.1)

I installed it in the SH-60J model that have had be included No.1 magazine.(No.2 and 3)

Electrical power is supplied through the wire embedded in tire parts from the floor.(No.4 and 5)

I have uploaded the movie on YouTube. You can see it at the URL written below.

https://youtu.be/Up2U8XLWJ3k

I have no idea how it shall be used for the IZUMO model.

Best Regards,
Yotaro

Hi All!
I sent my post about No.6 magazine build of DDH IZUMO. (No.1) This magazine included metal parts of hull and optical fibers.(No.2,3)

To install the hull part, I once loosened screws of near metal parts.(No.4) After installing it, I re-tightened them all. (No.5) This process is needed to decrease gaps among metal parts.

Optical fibers were attached to LED panel. They were fixed by metal panel.(No.5) Blue LED and fibers were examined. (No.6)

Optical fibers were installed through the holes of the flight deck. (No.7) Extra fibers were removed.(No.8)

I have done all the process of No.6 magazine.

Best Regards,
Yuraro.

Hi All!

I sent my post about No.7 magazine build of DDH IZUMO. (No.1)

Although two magazines are sent me every other week, I post each magazine's build log one post by one.

This magazine included MCH-101 multi-purpose large helicopter and LED circuit unit.(No.2)

The helicopter model was very easy to build. The only point to be caution was not to use glue. Main and tail rotors can be rotated.(No.3)

LED circuit was attached on the plastic base.(No.4,5) LEDs were examined. 2 blue LED and 1 red LED were installed here.(No.6)

They were attached on the flight deck part by screws.(No.7)

I have done all the process of No.7 magazine.

I'm planning enhancement on the helicopter (Not motorize). If I success it, I'll post the log about it.

Best Regards,
Yuraro.

Hi All!
I sent a post about enhancement of a helicopter model that is included No.7 magazine.

The model was shown in No.1 photo. I enhanced the parts of rotor blades.

Real blade is so thine that it is warped when it stops. (No.2) I think the blade parts are too thick to be 1:250 scale.(No.3)

I exchange the blades to thinner parts. I supported and strengthened the blade base for changed thinner parts. (No.4)

I got some 1:250 figures. I painted two of them and tried locating them near the helicopter model. (No.5,6 and 7)

Best Regards,
Yutaro

Hi eebygum!
Thank you for your comment.
Don't worry. In UK, you can buy YAMATO and AKAGI.

We can buy FORD in Japan.

Hi Alan!
Thank you for your comment on my post.
In this part work series, DeAGOSTINI small models are near perfect, I think.
So finding parts for enhancement is fun for me.

Hi wyatt

Thank you for your comment on my post.
Aircraft carrier model needs good aircraft model.
DeAGOSTINI Japan sells option 1:250 scaled models of some kinds of aircraft and other vehicle. But they are too expensive for me to collect.Crying
