  1. Now THERE'S sumthin; ya don't see every day. I didn't even know there WAS a TV series that included such a vessel. Bein' a sc-fi rendition, I don't see how it could be 'wrong', though.

    • This ship is the remake of 2012 ...the original series uchuu senkan yamato of 1974, called in United states starblazers, the kit of Bandai missed in many things and details, because I have the official book of illustrations with takes references.

  2. Another spectacular offering.

  3. A great and crazy model!
    I like that you weathered the part below the waterline as much as the part above it.

  4. That's FANTASTIC! I'm not into ship models, but that like to build. Well done.

  5. A blast from the past ,had forgotten this show! Great work!

  6. Can't help but love this one. I have never seen the series, but I reckon that as a model she looks even better than the anime original. 380 working hours is a lot of work, but what a result. Much appreciated together with your other recent postings.

    Welcome onboard at iModeler 🙂
