20 Sets of Molds, More Than 1,500 Parts
Based on the latest historical research, this famous WWII battleship has been reproduced down to the finest detail in this 752mm long 1/350 scale model kit. Even parts which had not been seen before in model form, such as the turret barbettes, have been reproduced as Tamiya challenges conventional ship model standards. This model accurately depicts the Yamato with increased anti-aircraft armament as she appeared on her final mission to Okinawa and may be assembled for either full-hull or waterline display. Two sheets of photo-etched parts for details such as ladders and cranes are also included. With this level of engineering, accuracy, and detail, this is literally Tamiya's new flagship model.

|One of Yamato's Final Escorts
|Item No: 78020 1/350 Scale Japanese Destroyer Yukikaze
The Yukikaze formed part of the escort force for the Yamato's final mission and returned with many of her survivors. This 1/350 scale model depicts the Yukikaze as she appeared on that fateful mission in April 1945, complete with radar equipment and increased anti-aircraft armament. Yukikaze was commissioned in January 1940 as the eighth ship of the Kagero-class and was referred to as the "lucky destroyer" since she took part in many notable actions, including Midway and Leyte Gulf, and always returned unscathed. Line her up with the Yamato to create an impressive display.
