My parallel build of the New Yamato is coming along, on the one hand simpler and on the other much more complicated than Bruno's build.

As I'm doing her in her 1941 configuration, the piles of additional flak guns won't be used at all and most of the real modifications are things to be removed.
There are some real changes too, especially on the tower with several wings added and removed. I'm also adding as much railings and other fussy bits to it as possible. mostly in the form of generic IJN railings modified for the various elements.

And a close-up of the back of the tower with the modified ladders, railings, and platforms.

And though I'm not at all keen on the Tamiya aftermarket rigging set, I do want to do something more substaintial than the regular photo-etch for some of the railings, so I'm using hard steel wire (fine gitar string)and very fine monfiliment line for the around the hull railings.
