Tamiya Japanese Battleship Yamato 1:350 Scale Model Ship Kit

Based on the latest historical research, this famous WWII battleship has been reproduced down to the finest detail in this 752mm long 1/350 scale model kit.

Even parts which had not been seen before in model form, such as the turret barbettes, have been reproduced as Tamiya challenges conventional ship model standards.

This model accurately depicts the Yamato with increased anti-aircraft armament as she appeared on her final mission to Okinawa and may be assembled for either full-hull or waterline display.

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 is a plastic model assembly kit of the Japanese battleship Yamato.

  • Scale: 1/350, Length: 751.5mm, Width: 110mm.
  • Detailed one-piece molded hull includes accurate recreations of the famous bulbous bow.
  • Bridge, funnel and other parts concentrated in the center of the ship are faithfully replicated, giving the model a highly realistic feel.
  • Details such as the sonar and main masts are depicted using precise engraving.
  • Triple 45-caliber 46cm gun turrets feature waterproof covers and are attached individually to the deck.
  • Other armaments including triple 60-caliber 15.5cm guns, twin 40-caliber 12.7cm guns, 25mm cannon mounts and more are recreated in detail.
