Description

This is an injection-plastic ship model kit.

Apparently unsatisfied with the 18-inch (46cm) guns of the Yamato and Musashi, the largest ever installed on a warship, the IJN wanted to up the ante even further by installing monstrous 20-inch (51cm) guns in three two-gun turrets, rather than the original three-gun turrets, on two "Super Yamato"-class battleships, but those plans were abandoned in 1942.

Almost 65 years later, Fujimi has finally realized the dream of mounting those massive cannons on a Yamato hull with the release of their new "IJN Phantom Battleship Yamato" waterline kit in 1/500 scale (previously available only in 1/700 scale).  Add this interesting "what if" Phantom Yamato to your collection today!
