1:250 Digital Navy Takao

Dear all,

I am building 1:250 Digital Navy Takao. I wonder if anybody has the same experience on the subject model. I have a major problem on making the crane at the rear mast.

Both due to lack of reference data also lack of parts (I think writer forget to put it in).

Anyone could provide openions on how to resulve this problem would be appreciated.

BILL


Hallo Zusammen,
ich baue gerade die Takao von Digital Navy in 1:250. Ich frage mich ob jemand ähnliche Erfahrungen mit diesem Modell hat. Ich habe nämlich ein gravierendes Problem mit der Herstellung des Krans am hinteren Mast.
Zum einen wegen fehlender Quellen und zum anderen wegen fehlender Teile (ich glaube die sind vom Designer vergessen worden)
Ich würde mich über jede Hilfe zur Lösung des Problems freuen.

Hi Bill,
I just put in the german translation for you. I can't help you myself though. But I am pretty sure that someone will.
Welcome to the community! Have fun and maybe you want to show us some pictures of your build.

Regards
Jan

Bill, I suggest you write to Roman directly at navy@digitalnavy.com

In the past he's responded to my questions quickly.


Cheers,


Oliver

Oliver,

Thanks for your info. Actually I think I did contact with the auther Roman before while I was heavily involved in constrcting this model. I don't quit remember what Roman reply to me but apprent I did not get the answer I expect (that is the reason why I still left crane position empty).

But anyway I think I will try to contact with him again.

Here I am attaching some pictures of this model I've built.

Dear Guido,

Thanks for sharing this web page. It did give me a lot of detail for reference.

I think I can never go that much detail. I also want to pay my respect to the maker of this Takao.

Takao Mast

Roman assumed the use of a toothpick due to the double cone structure of the boom (at least that's what he wrote to me)

I would assume Roman should have some drawing to support his 3D model. could it be possible for him provide me where I might get the reference drawings?

I think I should write to him.

Hi Bill,

I see you saw already the pictures of my TAKAO. You can also look on www.digitalnavy.com under SHOWCASE, the pictures of my model are there too.
I used the book "Anatomy of the Ship TAKAO" from Janusz Skulski.
You can find every detail in it you want, that's where I got all the information from and did a lot of scratch building.
Hope it was informative

Greetings

John Dohmen.

PS: I put a scan of the Tripod mast in this message just for your information
