Very tidy and clean build Warren!

Congrats on another commissioning!

No rigging?

I see also some ladders etc left natural brass-presuming this was intentional?

Looking forward to seeing Hikawa Maru sans ph%&*bucket!

Excellent workmanship, Warren.
I would guess 1/350 Hasegawa Hikawa Maru.

You did a wonderful job with that Fuso kit. Very clean and the paint work is excellent.

Again great work and looking forward to your next build.

Well before I start my next project I better wrap this one up..





























That's the Fuso finished. And now for my next trick..





Can you guess the model?

Oh and a big thank you to Postimage for the hosting space. And Photobucket, delete all my pictures. You are useless.

Excellent progress Mr Inman!

As Russ says, excellent progress!!
No doubt, Warren, commissioning is nearing, and Fuso is looking great! Amazing amount of detail!! - and I do know what you mean with all those small parts slowing you down, for sure!

Cheers,
Jan



Thanks guys.

Think I might do my first 1/200 ship next.

Cheers
Warren

Hi Warren!

Great to see you back in business!! Very nice work on your Fuso indeed! Looking forward to your updates in the good old Warren-fashion

And fully agreed on PB, I skipped them quite a while ago.

Cheers,
Jan



Thanks Jan.

And now for another update.

It's getting closer and closer to completion..













As you can see not almost there, but it is the small jobs (railings etc) that a;ways take the most time.

Cheers

Thanks Si.

The Etch has been a bit of a chore as the instructions are not good in any Fujimi sets unfortunately.

Cheers

Yep. They can go take a long walk off a very short pier.

Hi Warren!

It has been a long time since you were last here! Great to see you back & with progress on the Fuso!

You have been out of the loop haven't you? Photo bucket have changed their rules & no longer allow 3rd party hosting of images unless of course you pay an exorbitant fee!!!

It's caused mayhem for anyone with all their images on Photobucket!!!




Hi Russell.

Yes I have been out of the loop but PB can jam their fees up their butts as there are many free places out there who will do the job. I don't make money out of these posts so why should PB expect money from me to host photos?

Anyway, some more up to date photos for you all..









Let's see if that works.

Cheers
Warren

It has been so long since I uploaded anything I have to learn all over again!

Here are some progress pics in no particular order.





































In reality the ship is almost finished and I will add another update soon after I have taken some more photos.

Looks like someone has hacked my Photobucket account and has filled it up with photos not of my making. Will have to fix it somehow. But anyway I will just have to go back to uploading here by the look of it... for the moment anyway. Update soon.
