Product Description

Exquisitely detailed 1/350 scale model kit of the World War II Japanese Battleship Yamato. Yamato and her sister ship the Musashi were the largest battleships ever constructed, and she was the flagship of Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto during the historic "Battle of Midway". Yamato was sunk by U.S. dive bombers and torpedo bombers during "Operation Ten-Go", a suicide mission to attack the U.S. fleet supporting the invasion of Okinawa on April, 1945. Tamiya now presents the largest battleship ever built, looking as she did just prior to departing for her final mission, as 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 after assembly. A specially made display base and beautifully crafted nameplate are also included for a truly magnificent display.

I spend 30 hours of happy time building this Tamiya 1/350 scale model ship and I can only state that ship models have truely increased in detail and design in the last 50 years since I started building them many years ago. This is not a toy as such but a true hobby requiring both skill and much time but you will be rewarded for your efforts. I have build and collected all of the ships made by Tamiya in this scale (1/350) due to eye problems instead of the 1/700 scale ships offered these days. The amount of detail and clear instructions are first rate and you will enjoy both working on this model ship and displaying the Yamato with your collection. I might add that this ship model may be too difficult for children under 10 due to the detail and small parts as well as the time (20 to 30 hours) to sucessfully complete a fine model at this class of ship model building. The Yamato is just the thing to help start an interest in both Naval history and creating a new series of skills in building a model ship for a young teenager or old guy like myself. I might add that this model can be found in the $60.00 to $80.00 range, I was lucky to find my model at a yard sale and paid only $10.00 to the wife of the owner when he was in the house and did not realize the value of this model. I'm sure it was a lucky day for me and an unlucky day for him. You may not be so lucky but with prices going sky high these days from the likes of Trumpet and other model makers in this scale (1/350) running well over a hundred dollars they (Tamiya) are still a deal.

A very well built model. Comes with a counter action gear box to get all four propellers motorized easily. Was easy to install an RC kit, although alot of custom work is needed for the rudder as the space is a little cramped. Buy a photoetch kit and the book about the ship on amazon as well to help make the model look super.

This is an incredibly awesome kit. Tamiya renowned for their models and paint have really outdone there reputation with this kit. The kit is extremely detailed and a pretty decent price for a 1/350 battleship if you ask me. It comes with all the pieces you need along with decals. Very easy to assemble and simple paints. The rigging is a bit hard but that shouldn't be con because all ships need to be rigged if you want more detail. I would highly recommend this kit even for nooby modelers. If you're a pro modeler and want this Yamato to really shine then I would suggest Veteran Model 25mm Type 96 triple AA gun set which is a high detailed resin kit of the AA guns and you replace them with the one that comes with this kit. Along with the Lionroar Yamato PE deluxe set. All of this will truly make your model into a museum model. No joke those kits and a pro modeler can make this ship into the real deal. Overall great kit. I'd highly suggest those two kits that will make the Yamato really shine.

Tamiya is a company well known for their hobby supplies and model kits. Back in 2007 or 2008, I purchased this kit from a local hobby store. It was an enjoyable build as a novice model builder. The instructions come in two booklets- japanese and english, although you could read either to assemble the kit. There were zero fit issues with this kit. Painting it (at the time) was difficult due to using spray cans, but should be no problem even with the use of spray cans. Easy to assemble; no corners cut. The detail is surprising, but if you have the expertise, buy a photo-etch set to really enhance the model. I made mine an RC ship, and it took quite a bit of custom work. Even as a static model, the Yamato is impressive- and fat! (proportionate and in scale). I recommend this kit if you are up to it- I purchased it for $80 years ago. If it is cheaper now- it is actually a good deal. The "toy" is durable because it survived a very rugged 800 mile move with a bad moving company. I plan on purchasing the sister ship, the Musashi, also in 1/350 scale. It should have a slightly different configuration than the Yamato.

I think this item was a little more challenging than expected, but I think he will one day get it finished and be very proud.

In the hobby world Tamiya products are the best.
Battleship Yamato by Tamiya is just another example of an excellent product.
Well worth the extra money.
