INCREDIBLE Space Cruiser Yamato Models

If you think your Bandai 1/350 Yamato is big.......well, you've got another thing coming.

I think (I think) that both the Yamato and Andromeda might be built to 1/160 scale.
There is nothing that I can find that states the scales of these scratch builds, except for some real world comparisons such as......
1.) A pack of cigerettes.
2.) A bottle of Tamiya thin liquid cement.
3.) In one shot they show the 1/500 kit and it dwarfs it.
4.) A whole bunch of figures that look like 1/160 (N-Scale). (Unless of course its Z-scale which makes it 1/220).

Yamato
http://www.geocities.jp/dourakuoyadi/newpage1.htm

Andromeda
http://www.geocities.jp/dourakuoyadi/newpage0-1.htm


Both of these builds go way past what the animated series ever showed, and took a lot of their detail from the Yamato mechanics where the detail of these ships was really fleshed out.

On any of these pages, hit 'TOP' to see a bunch of other goodies like a 1/500 EDF battleship (looks like a resin kit) etc.

I did find the page with the 'accurizing' of the 1/350 Bandai kit.

Yes its all great stuff.

While I agree he's seems to be doing a lot of 1/500 stuff, there is clearly a shot of what looks like the 1/500 Yamato Bandai Kit next to another Yamato that is 2 to 3 times larger than the 1/500 kit.


Even if the smaller kit is a 1/700 scale kit, then the larger one is still larger than 1/500.

BTW: Didn't you pick up the Bandai kit??

How do you like it? I'm thinking about picking one up myself.

Very nice. I wish I had picked one of those up years ago.

You don't happen have to have two of those and want to sell one do you?

And BTW, Are we the ONLY two SCY fans here?

I keep looking at my 350 Yamato kit and scratching my head... I know why I bought it, I just have no idea when I'll be able to get it assembled...

Fan here as well, but I've always thought of it as Starblazers... although I DID give up calling her Argo.

Wow, that is an incredible scratch building job on the Yamato! One of these days, I'm going to have to hunt down the series itself on DVD... the movie is all I have seen, and while it is a good introduction to the show it did have an awful lot of gaps in it.

I'm a fan too... in fact I built a Bandai Andromea/EDF cruiser display for Chiller Theater back in 2000. Man I didn't know there was a 1/350 Andromeda! Can you still get those?
