1/350 Space Battleship Yamato English Manual
Was looking through my backlog files and I found out that I still haven't gotten around to translating the 1/350 Space Battleship Yamato Manual. Looking at the files I suddenly remembered why I always put it off, because the sheer number of pages was just daunting. Took me about a week to translate the more than 50+ files and boy was I tired afterwards.
Looking through this manual it has made me appreciate this model kit. My hats off to the guys at Bandai who designed this thing. I love the complexity of the remote control system. Truly unique and jaw dropping with what they were able to accomplish. Plus of course this is in 1/350 scale, what's not to love about a massive model kit? *snicker*
I have a soft spot for Space Battleship Yamato because as a kid I grew up watching the Westernized version of it known as Star Blazers. Sure brings back memories again seeing this kit. I know there was a remake made but I still haven't gotten around to watching that. But hey, I found some old episodes at youtube, so that's my nostalgia fix for me there.
The 1/350 Space Battleship Yamato is selling for $427.21 at Amazon
Construction Manual & Color Guide for the 1/350 Space Battle Ship Yamato was translated to English from the Japanese Manual posted at Dalong's Gunpla & Model Kit Review site.
