Building Woody Joe’s Atakebune Kit – Part 8

HSPMS member Clare Hess posted an update on his Atakebune model. This model is being built from a kit by the Japanese wooden kit manufacturer Woody Joe. It represents the largest class of warship used by the seafaring clans of Japan in the 1500s. This 1/100 scale build is going well and should be completed possibly by the end of February.

Updates on the progress of the Atakebune model are long overdue. The project has been continuing, and I’ve done quite a bit. But, I’ve been quite slow on writing posts. So, I’ll try to get partially caught up here, but I’ll probably need to write another post soon to finish catching up.

Stern structure added to the model. Note that all the doors have been added to the model. I simply taped them into place from the inside at this stage.
