... these 10cm turrets' hatches and handrails are incredibly neat :o

We'll see about that after the primer ;) 

For most PE work I use water based paper glue for the fist contact, only after the part is in place I add some CA from invisible side. Bending isn't difficult at all, all those parts have etchings in right places, they virtually bend themselves... although nearly 20 years of experience with paper models before does help ;)

Wow, the last photo is really showing of your effort, well done. Just one thing I have seen "off" is bridge windows, I felt like it could benefit from some filling and sanding but anyway probably no one gonna notice it when looking with real eyes so not a real problem. Also the handrails on turrets looks pretty neat, so I was right about that earlier :) also I really liked the highlighting on them, it looks very natural. Keep it up sensei, we are watching with interest.

Aye them bridge windows could have been better, but I'll hide it with some streaks or rust or some other trick ;) 

MACRO is an enemy of a modeler :D

Good to see your progress and she is looking pretty good, I bet these 25mm guns are from Fine Molds, right? I'm not sure if I should order them even though pe set have them so, I wonder why you didn't used etched guns come with the kit.

Fuyuzuki during Ten-Ichi Go

Fuyuzuki under attack Ten Ichi-Go April 1945

 

Fuyuzuki post war, white stripe seems to be removed or worn off in 1946. Little photo on the top right is Suzutsuki, the picture doesn't belong to me so, I wasn't the one that put it there. 

Fuyuzuki funnel close up, postwar

 

Suzutsuki post war, her circle is placed more forward and has another stripes below that so I believe Fuyuzuki also had one during her escorting mission of Yamato. Also it's pretty obvious that the ship in first photo is not Suzutsuki, as the bridge is round shaped.

I don't want to be seen as a river counter or something but I don't see any good in a forum if I can't point out something I spotted different in the references but only being able to tell kind and motivating words. The white strip on your funnel looks too thin and lacks the white circle which were painted for Ten-Ichi Go. I think painting them would add more character to the model but it's not a life-death situation though. 

I had been looking pictures for weeks to spot the correct white strip painting on the funnel of Maya during 1933 Naval Review so I can't hold myself back when I see a white striped funnel on a Japanese ship :P

Thanks. 

In my defence I'd like to point out a few things ;) I've never said that I'm aiming for Yamato's last voyage, she's going to be in drydock undergoing maintenance sometime in 1945. I'm quite happy I managed to paint that bloody strip at all, since I had to brush paint it freehand. 

AA guns are Finemolds ones surely, I prefer them over flat things provided as PE, plus they have advantage of not requiring a lot of time.
