Last Saturday I was gifted with a 1/350 Yamato battleship smiley Some big battleship that is. A bit shorter than USS New Jersey but somewhat wider. The propeller shafts should be easier to mount than in New Jersey. The rudder installation is however quite interesting and might be tricky to get working right if it is to be authentic.

More info on the real thing on wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yamato_battleship.

I know that Eduard has a photo etch set for this boat. That will probably make it look quite good.
