1/1000 Space Battleship Yamato 2199 English Manual & Color Guide

1/1000 Space Battleship Yamato 2199 Construction Manual & Color Guide

From Bandai comes the 1/1000 Space Battleship Yamato 2199 from the anime of the same name. From what I understand the Space Battleship Yamato 2199 anime is a reboot of the original 1970 series to attune it to the advancements of modern day animation techniques. I think also to introduce to newer fans the series all over again.

Space Battleship Yamato holds a special place in my heart because as a young kid I got to watch some episodes of the Space Battleship Yamato, but I got to watch the "Americanized" version known as Star Blazers. I remember one time in the beach I saw some large drift wood washed up ashore. Because of their shapes, I imagined that they were the large capital ships and had a ball playing with these large chunks of wood, placing them on the sand and imagining they were my fleet. I wonder if kids these days still use their imagination when playing?, where an ordinary piece of wood or common day item transforms to whatever it is the current topic of playtime is about.

The 1/1000 Space Battleship Yamato 2199 is selling for $38.43 at Amazon, 2760 yen at Amiami, 3040 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 3230 yen at Hobby Search
