Re: Tamiya ' s 1/ 700 USS Bogue More Options
Many thanks for that information - I shall have to keep an eye out for the six issues!!
It looks like there might have only been six issues of "Model Ship Guide" from Pit-Road.
I had a couple of them at one point, but only still have #1 which is all ship photos and no other conversions. I think I gave the other one away at some point. http://mini-pla.la.coocan.jp/misc/WL_Memories/WL_Memories16.html https://auctions.yahoo.co.jp/search/search?p=model+ship+guide&va=model+ship+guide&fixed=3&exflg=1&b=1&n=50
A very interesting article - I did not know of the Pit-Road Magazine and can find no worthwhile references to it on the internet - are there anyother similar conversions in other issues of it?
Another option is to strip it down to the bare hull and use as the basis for a C-3 conversion.
Pit-Road did an article on this in their magazine way back when. I started on the project but stopped before addressing the shape issues at the stern, and becoming (predictably) distracted by other builds.
Not sure that this makes use of the best aspects of the kit but added here for your entertainment.
