FineScale Modeler reviews the 1/72 scale plastic model turret gun kit. Epitomizing the phrase “go big or go home,” the Japanese designed a class of super-battleships that were intended to win a “decisive battle” against their likely U.S. Navy adversaries. Armed with massive 18.1-inch rifles, the Yamato-class were the largest battleships ever constructed. Mirroring the mammoth dimensions of the real thing, Takom has released a 1/72 kit of Yamato’s No.1 turret — the forwardmost mount of the ships three. A large chunk of deck is included for display.
