This item is a Japanese-language book or magazine about model construction techniques. 110 pages.
From kits that accompanied the show's first airing in 1974--dig that box art!--up through 2007's 1/350-scale masterpiece, coverage of the history of Space Battleship Yamato models (the Yamato herself as well as that decade-spanning epic's many other mecha) is just one of the great features in this full-color softcover book. Another is its 17-page, meticulously photo-illustrated building and painting guide for Bandai's glorious 1/350 Yamato kit (linked below). Also lovingly covered are scratchbuilt spacecraft and the exact colors used in Yamato's various animated appearances. Recommended!
