Yamato 2199 1/1000 WIP #1 – A look at the sprues


For certain reasons the Shadow Fox will have to be put on hold for a while, but I’m not keeping still. I have a little 1/24 car on the works and now I’m starting this little beauty, Bandai’s 1/1000th Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Not a big box but packed. After I took the pieces out to check em I can no longer close it heh.


The minuscule anti fighter/flak guns, are quite impressive considering the size. I just hope I don’t break or loose any.


Some Transparent pieces if someone wants to light it up.


This sprue doesn’t look like the Yamato and indeed it isn’t. It’s a Gamillas carrier that is included as a bonus.


The main weapons. They look really sharp and detailed and the larger gun barrels are hollowed out. Really nice stuff.


The underside of the ship. Sharp details should give it a really good look after a wash or two.


Fighters. Really intimidating. With this size I don’t know how I will paint them … They do look really good.


The rear of the deck and the base for the bridge superstructure.


The main sections of the hull, again with some very nice detailing and besides some tide marks (which will disappear after painting) there is no problem with the plastic.


Antennae, the bridge and assorted pieces that go around with the same consistent quality as previous parts.


And to finish it off we have the display pieces with the stand, the fighter hangar and engine, both of which can be shown with the removal of a couple of pieces from the hull.

All in all an excellent looking kit. Can’t wait to get started.
