1/500 Space Battleship Yamato English Manual & Color Guide

1/500 Space Battleship Yamato
I remember watching the Space Battleship Yamato anime series when I was boy. At that time of course I saw the "Americanized" version which was titled "StarBlazers".

The battleship Yamato is of course based off the real battleship Yamato that was a flagship of the Japanese Navy during the second world war. In what could be dubbed as a suicide mission, she was dispached to fight off the American naval forces in Operation Ten-Go. Unknown to the Japanese was that the Americans were already aware of the operation because they had previously decoded Japanese communications regarding the operation. With that information on hand, the Americans were able to sink her before she could accomplish her mission.

The 1/500 Space Battleship Yamato is selling for $94.00 at Amazon, 4930 yen at Amiami, 5440 yen at HobbyLink Japan
