Just added a few pics of my 350 scale ships to my gallery. If you are so inclined, check it out and feel free to make any comments. I am always looking forward to improving. With all the projected 350 scale kits coming down the pike it might be wise.

Looking awesom Blaster, you did well! I like your taste, I have built these same kits. Exept for the Missouri, its sitting on my shelf next in line.
A couple of tips:
White glue(elmers), is a handy thing. I use it to make lenses for the search lights, it dries transparent. then I dry brush a *little* silver over them. I also use the white stuff to build blast bags for the guns.

I use flat black to paint in the port holes and any windows to highlight them.
I was going to mention mild weathering such as rust, but I see on your Yamoto you did that.
Besides these tidbits, you did a fine job!

Best regards,
Garry
