  1. WOW….I’ll wager all the after market was as much (if not more) than the kit itself. Stellar craftsmanship, my friend.

  2. Nice consistent work again Anthony.
    What material did you use for the white belts that hold the ships boats to the davits? Pic 27.

  3. Anthony, beautiful build, iconic ship.

  4. Mighty battleship; mighty impressive model Anthony! Dude. What a beauty!!

  5. Very nice work Anthony. Good stuff.

  6. Great model of my favourite ship, Anthony!

  7. Anthony, wow! This is a beautiful model! Once upon a time (think 1971-72) there was a model Yamato that was nearly 7 feet long, 1/48 scale, or something of that sort. It was HUGE! Is this the same kit? At the time I could get one of these kits for $89.85 if I remember correctly, but at that time, I was fairly newly married, just had a baby girl, was trying to afford to stay in college, and THEN got my draft notice! A $90 kit was sooooo much more than I could afford, but I sure wish I had a dozen of these to sell now in 2017! I THINK they were Tamiya kits. Anyway, your work is superb! I’ve never built any ships, only a couple cars, a few tanks, & a bunch of planes in 1/48 & 1/72 scale. I really admire this!
