This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.
Yamato was meant to symbolize Japan's dominance. She was the most powerful battleship ever built. Her main battery could engage targets 26 miles (42 km) away and her secondary battery dwarfed the firepower of most cruisers. Yamato had arrived too late, though. The battleship era was over. On April 7, 1945, nearly 400 American aircraft intercepted Yamato. After four hours of attacks, Yamato capsized and a magazine detonated, blowing the ship in half.
This kit features a simplified build of the Yamato with a full decal set.
