1/700 Fuyuzuki (Akizuki Type)

June 16, 2020 · in Ships · · 5 · 3.6K

Aoshima Yoizuki kit with the Five Star Fuyuzuki upgrade kit:

The upgrade kit is essential for this build as the original kit is pretty basic. I also added aftermarket rope reels and built the wood base and acrylic case myself. For this build I tried to unify some techniques I've been working on for hull panel detail, pre- and post-shading painting, weathering, and rigging. I think it came together well overall but as always I learned a lot and have some new ideas and refinements in mind for the next one.

  1. Amazing modeling!

  2. Hard to believe that's 1/700 - then there's the photo with the pencil.

  3. Nice work! I love small scale ships, but they’re ambivalent towards me at best.

  4. Looks great, a masterpiece

  5. This is amazing, Evan.
    So small, packed with all those details!
