I was impressed by your previous cut model but I saw it after completion. This time I'll follow your build from the begining until the finish!

...And it's not a kit? I am the most impressed by the effort.

There's some unique miniaturization there. Great job.

Hello John,
I admire your skill, to get that kind of detail into the hull. It reminds me of some of the submarine models that display the interior.
Mike

I can't believe that all these details are actually documented somewhere. Would you like to reveal what is the kind of reference material is used for the build?

This is excellent, John. I'm excited about seeing you build another cutaway model of an IJN ship.

Thanks guys,

Lex: Well, I use the drawings I have of TAMA wich also includes a drawing that shows the inside of the ship, and also I use interior pictures of other warships, and have been in the Navy, I know a little bit about what is happening inside.

John.

That's an excellent drawing, John. Looks very useful for your purposes.

Your build sparked my interest in Tama. I see that his ship spent a lot of time in northern waters - Hokkaido, the Kuriles and Aleutians - in two different Arctic camouflage schemes. For example: File:IJN Tama in 1942.jpg - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I would be interested to know what color scheme you plan to finish your Tama in.

On a purely personal note, I like the name "Tama." The ship was named for the river that runs past Yokota, Japan, where I lived for three years. It's a beautiful and historic river valley (and Yokota Air Base was the IJAAF aircraft test facility duirng the war - the Army version of the IJN First Naval Air Technical Arsenal at Yokosuka). Nothing to do with your superb model or the ship you are modeling. Just my mind wandering.

Looking forward to more images.

Don
