Product in Depth
The battleship Yamato, the iconic flagship of Japan's World War II fleet, was sunk on the 7 April 1945 about 50 miles southwest of Kyushu island in an overwhelming display of force by the US Navy. Three months later, in August 1945, all the drawings and even the official photographs of the ships were destroyed by the Japanese Command in an attempt to protect their designs from the approaching Allied forces.
Working closely with the Yamato Museum in Kure, Japan, De Agostini's master model-maker has developed an incredibly detailed, 1:250 scale model of the battleship Yamato. Using a 1:10 scale replica housed in the Museum as reference, alongside rediscovered drawings and photos from both the Japanese archive and allied reconnaissance photos, the Yamato has been painstakingly researched and rebuilt as a finely-detailed model kit. Consisting of over 500 wooden parts and 1,200 pieces cast in metal, this beautifully detailed model has already been a huge success in its native Japan and was launched for the first time in the UK by ModelSpace.
The battleship Yamato is available exclusively to ModelSpace customers as a series of 11 or 22 monthly instalments, or as a one-off purchase for all of the parts. This model is not available anywhere else and is a stunning addition to any ship modeller's collection. Plus, using detailed step-by-step instructions and clear photography, the Yamato is suitable for both experienced modellers and those new to the hobby.
