*Shameless BUMP*

The gallery is add-free and has more photos (and LARGER photos) than the last time I chimed in on this thread, 8 years ago.

http://www.battleshipyamato.com/

Easier to remember, I am sure y'all will agree.

The old link is still good and will continue to work.

Hi folks - I have added a couple of really nice colorized photos of the Yamato created by that IJN in Color blogger in Jpan - his work is truly awesome and his site is linked on my index page.

Anyhow, here are the links to the 2 new color photos - one of the Ten'ichi-go operation:

Thanks. Unfortunately, I am not quite that computer savvy. The Tripod site is free, which was one of the reasons I went with it. I tried a few other formats and was instantly lost. (Hey this is the first time I actually figured out how to insert links to other pages).

For now, it will have to stay as it is, I'm afraid. Unless I can figure out how to put the long introduction somewhere else. In any event, if someone is crazed enough about the Yamato, they'll figure it out. :>)

The navigation needs work. Scrolling to the bottom of the page for an enlarged thumbnail is tedious, at best. Folks aren't going to read your blurb with viewing instructions (indeed, you probably shouldn't need instructions). With some shuffling of the layout, getting everything within a standard viewable window should be doable. This will make the site intuitive enough to use, will eliminate a rather baffling page load (when you click a thumbnail at the top, the page reloads, and you see no difference until you scroll down), and make the pictures more directly viewable.
