Wonder how many kits will make up the complete ship???  :dunce:

Fujimi does the turrets and the complete citadel (in three separate kits - bridge, funnel area, secondary armament) in 1/200; that would be quite huge if laid out as they were on the ship.

A 1/72 Yamato would be 12 feet (3.64 meters) long!

Does it come with any figures, it would give it a sense of scale more. Cool looking kit subject though

it does not seem too, revell do some 1/72nd Kriegsmarine figures that may suit .

And, naturally, someone's built it:

Anyone have an idea of the size of this thing ? In 1/72 its got to be impressive.

There appears to be a measurement in the second pic, half a meter form the rear of the base to the muzzles.

50cm length overall.

Interesting choice of subject to be sure. Takom have a flair for being imaginative.

Cannot help thinking though that this will be, in the absence of any internals etc, a fairly simple model?

Not that it really matters though! Look good next to my ModelCollect 1/72 P15000 Ratte Landkreuzer! 😊
