Building Woody Joe’s 1/72-scale Kitamaebune Kit – Part 3b

A brief update on my build of the Woody Joe kit of the Edo period northern port coastal transport called a Kitamaebune.

This is just a short update on the Kitamaebune build.

I added a couple pieces to the transom to simulate the plank that seems to show up on every benzaisen model or image I’ve seen.

In the above image, the red arrows point to the plank that I’m referring to. The blue arrow points to the very tip of the side planking at the stern. The piece in the Woody Joe kit is truncated close to where the dashed blue line is, and actually a bit lower than that, really.
