1/500 Space Battleship Yamato English Manual & Color Guide

1/500 Space Battleship Yamato Construction Manual & Color Guide

After translating the 1/350 Space Battleship Yamato Manual, I thought why not go for another one? So yep did the 1/500 Space Battleship Yamato that was released by Bandai a couple years back.

Even had the theme of the Starblazers movie playing in the background while I was at it *snicker*... sure brought back memories, especially when I watched a couple of episodes of it in youtube. So yeah, if you don't see me posting here soon you'll already know why...hehehe

The 1/500 Space Battleship Yamato by Bandai is selling for $ at Amazon.
