This is 1/250 scale Musashi kit produced by Arii. I purchased this kit in the last of 2002. I built it without any photo-etching and all of the additional detail is scratch built by stretched plastic and plastic beam and plastic plate, fishing rope (0.115mm) and steel wire etc. I tried to make it museum style with simple coloring and complex detail. I copied many details from many Yamato models. Each Yamato model has a bit different details. Finally my Musashi's detail is mixed with Yamato detail. During the last of 2002 to December 2006 (Although I didn't build 2004 to the middle of 2006) I spent up to a year to build it. It's my unique & precious ship model.
