From the publisher:
Equipped with the largest guns, heaviest armor, and greatest displacement of any battleship ever built, the Yamato was a formidable opponent of the U.S. Pacific Fleet in World War II. The book contains a full description of the design and construction of the battleship, including wartime modifications and a career history, followed by: a substantial pictorial section with rare onboard views of Yamato and her sister ship Musashi; a comprehensive portfolio of more than 600 perspective and three-view drawings; and 30 photographs as well as 3-D color renditions of both ships. The wreck of Musashi has been recently discovered to great excitement in Japan, renewing interest in these iconic warships.

The account of these renowned ships of the 20th century Japanese navy are among the most comprehensive of Conway/Bloomsbury’s Anatomy of the Ship series, with hundreds of meticulously researched drawings. Author Skulski has teamed up with 3D artist Dramiński, whose realistic renditions bring a new level of detail to the ships’ portraits.

FSM says: Lavishly illustrated with colorized photos, color profiles showing the ships in yearly configurations, plus scale and schematic drawings showing superstructure, decks and fittings, right down to lifbuoy frames. It’s difficult to imagine a modeler needing more than what is shown in this authoritative tome.
