Space Battleship Yamato 1/1300 Scale Diecast

From Space 1999 rocket ships (previous post) to another spaceship that I grew up with in the 70s, the Space Battleship Yamato from the anime series of the same name ("Star Blazers" in English). The Space Battleship Yamato was created from the wreck of the World War II battleship Yamato, sunk in the sea near Okinawa and converted into a spacecraft by the Earth Defence Force in the late 22nd century to do battle with the Gamilons, an alien race that had declared war on Earth.

This limited edition 1/1300 scale reproduction is a diecast metal and plastic reproduction. Over 20cm long, it comes with 3 Cosmo Tiger Space Fighters, has an opening bay door for storage of the Fighters and its wings open at the touch of a button.




For a bigger scale and more awesome Space Battleship Yamato which offers a cross-section view of the entire ship, check out my post HERE.
