This is an injection-plastic ship model kit.
Tamiya has unleashed the ultimate model kit of the IJN Yamato in 1/350 scale! This is an all-new tooling of the massive Japanese battleship, not a re-tooling of their veteran Yamato kit in the same scale. With access to the latest research on the Yamato, Tamiya has ensured the greatest accuracy possible in a model kit with this release.
The kit can be built as a full-hull or waterline model, and includes detailed turret structures that extend deep down into the decks as the real turrets did. Also includes two frets of photo-etched metal detail parts for radars, ladders, cranes, and more. Builds into the Yamato in its final configuration, as it steamed south to defend Okinawa in April of 1945. Overall length when assembled is 75.5cm long.
