Default SPACESHIPS! Yup - time for some SBY goodies

hi folks

Yes, in your best Lego Movie, 80's Space dude's voice, it's time for: Spaceships!!
After the Dragonfly, I thought I would go back to a tried and true WIP formula of Starships, but not your typical SW or ST subjects but some Space Battleship Yamato 2202! Yay


As some of you know, I have built most of the Garmillian ships except a couple, got half way through the Gatlantis 'Wasp' Carrier before I ran out of steam (and I must get that finished) and now this - the Kongo Class ship of the Earth Defense Force. This will be the first of 3 ship builds over the next few months. Up after this will be the mighty Andromeda and then the Dreadnought!



The Yunagi is a small ship - only 20cm long in total and 3cm wide but there is heaps of room for detailing - a task I thoroughly enjoy.

I made a start on this about 3 weeks ago but put it down to start the Dragon Fly. Now that it's practically finished, I picked up the Yunagi again last night and got a fair bit of the lighting installed and some surface detail added. Still lots more to do but there is no time limit on it and I am in no rush.



There are markings for 2 ships and of course, there are a total of 3 ships in the box. I am not sure I will get to the other 2 anytime soon as they don't appeal to me as much as this one does.

Naturally, I won't be using the colour calls outs Bandai say because it's my ship and I'll do what I want with it

So, enough blabbing, time for some pics:























Well, that's all I have for now, but I shall be back again soon enough.
As always, thanks for stopping in and having a look
Si

Looking great already. And that'll look so cool being all lit up!

thanks Thom
I've had some ideas for this one for a while and now I just need to get them to work. Getting the bridge lit will be the biggest challenge I think

I remember you asked about the bridge windows before. Damn fine sanding job there to keep from going too far.

Default Re: SPACESHIPS! Yup - time for some SBY goodies

Time for an update
Spent a good solid few hours on this last night and accomplished a fair bit for a change. Got most of the surface detail sorted and will now look to get the lighting all sorted and final construction happening. It's a small kit so that are not that many pieces
I'm going to try out a new method of painting using an extraction fan filter and see if I can't get a more mottled finish with it.
In the mean time, here's what I managed to get done:

















Everything at the moment is just push held - nothing glued. Its one reason I love Bandai kits - half the time you don't even need glue!!

Anyways, will leave it at that, but as always, thanks for looking
Si

Thanks for modeling! It's become quite the busy looking little ship.

I really love the little extra surface features you have added- to really make these kits shine!

Default Re: SPACESHIPS! Yup - time for some SBY goodies

Thanks guys

Time for an update. The surface detail is all done now and it's ready for painting! I will begin this process later this afternoon or tonight
I've used Maskol for the main windows and exterior SMD's but will remove the window masks and put over a light covering of the base colour once everything else is done so I won't loose too much luminosity (at least - that's the plan)



















The engine nozzle is missing from the pics but it's there. I cut out a disc of frosted clear plastic to help disperse the light for the engine LED. Hope it works!

More pics later
As always, thanks for looking
Si

Default Re: SPACESHIPS! Yup - time for some SBY goodies

When we see the Kirishima in the first 2199 episode, you think, 'that's a big ship.'

Then you see it next to a Gamillas capitol ship, or even the Yamato, and you think, 'okay, not that big...'

Then you add all those little detail pieces over the hull, and suddenly it does look that big!

Default Re: SPACESHIPS! Yup - time for some SBY goodies

Last update now before the finish. Some paint has gone on and I am pretty happy with how its coming out so far. The details have blended in nicely and don't look too out of scale. I am altering the paint scheme just slightly by having a light grey underneath as opposed to a blue hue as the top will already be blue and I think blue and grey go together nicely. There will also be a bit of pale yellow trim in there too just to add some colour.

The first coupe of shots were taken so I can remember where I stuck the panel tape on later otherwise I'll forget.









That's it for now. The next post will be the final shots I think.I made a start on the much bigger Andromeda the other night, so I'll start a new thread for that later
As always, thanks for looking
Si

Coming together nicely! And quick too. Can't wait to see it join the fleet.

Default Re: SPACESHIPS! Yup - time for some SBY goodies

thanks Thom. It's funny you should say "fleet"as that's how I am thinking I may display this ship: to fly alongside the Andromeda and a dreadnought with one of the smaller escort ships from the Yunagi set

OK , so maybe one more WIP pic as I had the camera out taking some snaps of the Andromeda, I thought I would quickly snap a couple off of the Yunagi ;D





Anyways, that's enough for now, but thanks for looking
Si

Nice start on the paint. I'm sure you've been asked before, but where do you get the little detail parts you use?

Default Re: SPACESHIPS! Yup - time for some SBY goodies

Thanks Thom,
No one has asked me before but happy to answer. The parts are from various 1/700 ship kits and Pitt Road detail sets. I use 1/700 because they have heaps of detail but are still in scale (mostly). Cuts here and there can make a gun into a different type of machinery.

Default Re: SPACESHIPS! Yup - time for some SBY goodies

well, it's pretty much all done now. Just need to take some day light pictures. The lights are playing funny buggers and now the main bridge light works but the engine light has stopped. Sometimes, I wonder why I even bother...
Anywho, here's a couple of lit shots before the day shots:









I have made a decent start on the Andromeda so pics soon
As always, thanks for looking
