Japanese Yamato Battleship Boat

With many revolutionary features incorporated into her design, the Yamato was completed in December 1941, and met her final fate at the hands of American Navy carrier aircraft in the South China Sea while on a one way mission to Okinawa. This model features minor modifications to Tamiya's previous Yamato replicas Items 78002 and 78014, and has her looking as she did just prior to departing for her final mission, in an exquisite 1/350 scale assembly kit display model. The Yamato's massive imposing silhouette is accurately reproduced, and both the main gun turrets and secondary armament turrets can be rotated even after assembly.

"One of the best"
cdnmodeller (Edmonton, AB)
About 20 years ago, I bought this kit as a present to myself after graduating from nursing school. I had been away from modelling for a couple of years & wanted to get back into it. I chose this 1 because I had wanted to build a 1/350 for some time. The detailing is minute, right down to the 20mm antiaircraft guns mounted on the deck. It was time-consuming, but this is to be expected given the amount of detail on it. Like most Tamiya models the parts detached from the molds fairly easily. An extensive amount of paint & glue will be necessary! 20 years after it was finished I still have it, and it is still in good condition. It has a compartment in the hull for an RC motor should you decide to go that route. I briefly considered it but when I discovered how much a motor & controller cost I decided against it. This is highly recommended.

Nice sturdy plastic pieces. great model for beginners and for those that want to make fine details.

This kit was very well detailed and instructions were very easy to follow. There were a lot of very small fragile pieces that proved a little challenging to get into the right place. Overall this kit is high quality and I would definitely recommend it to any ship modelers or those getting into it.
