IJN Yamato

Three Yamato-class battleships were constructed during World War II for the Imperial Japanese Navy – Yamato, Musashi and Shinano, the last of which was converted to an aircraft carrier during building.
At 72,000 tonnes, they were the largest and most heavily armed battleships ever constructed. They carried nine 460mm guns, each capable of firing 2,998-pound (1,360kg) shells for a distance of 26 miles (42km). These were the largest calibre naval guns ever fitted on a warship, each measuring 69 feet (21m) in length and weighing 147 tonnes.

Yamato was launched on the 8th August 1940 and was commissioned on 16th December 1941. Yamato was sunk on the 7th of April 1945 during Operation Ten-Go, a deliberate suicide attack against American forces off Okinawa. At 12:32 on 7 April 1945, Yamato was attacked by a first wave of 280 aircraft from Task Force 58, taking three hits (two bombs, one torpedo). By 14:00, two of Yamato’s escorts had been sunk. Soon after, a second strike of 100 aircraft attacked Yamato and, at 14:23, having taken 10 torpedo and 7 bomb hits, Yamato’s forward ammunition magazines detonated, ripping her hull apart.

1/250 scale, plywood framework, plank on frame construction, die-cast metal parts, photo-etched brass & display stand included.

The assembly guide contains clear, step-by-step instructions, accompanied by detailed photos, to make building your model as easy as possible.

In this instance the official build for this collection does not adhere to the instructions sequence.

Hull base sections joined and then secured to a build board to avoid warp in the early stages of the Hull build.

And now the Bow block, don't worry about the horseshoe sitting above the deck line, later on this is to be sanded at an angle to meet with the deck line, and is what transforms the top of upright bow block into the correct angle to meet with the deck angle.

The start of the hull planking which is single skinned, start at the bow and ensure you plank each side of the hull alternately, and that the planking is level across the beam, don't forget to glue plank-to-plank, the follow on plank gaps can be set with a plank off-cut, don't do any surface profiling until the planking is complete.

More planking heading towards the stern, being a static dispaly model its a single skinned hull, both sides of the hull is planked in a 5 plank wide central band, where the above & below are tackled when both sides are complete, ensure you plank alternately either side of the hull.

More planking running towards the stern, ensure that the stagger gaps are the same with of the planks, which can be set with off-cuts.

Stern planking, the edges of the strakes will need to be slightly bevelled to ensure a good fit, ensure you retain all off-cuts and set aside two remaing strakes for later use.
