Has anyone tried to map out the wreck of Yamato and what pieces are where? I'm making a wreck model of the ship based off the model at Kure. It's the only reference of the wreck to go on as there are little to no photos to go off of to guide me.

Such as how much of the bridge is seen jammed under her bow as the bridge is seen face down into the mud with the bow above it.

Mapping out of the hull at where she is broken and what pieces line up to show how the bow tore off, same with her decks.

There seems to be more material on the wreck of Musashi than Yamato when trying to look for wreck reference material. I know from trying to find Yamato wreck material. Mostly her sister is seen.

If someone can post photos of the 1/350 wreck diorama at Kure that would be cool as I'm curious on what damage the upside down main hull has as all photos of the model show only the starboard side facing the viewer and not the port side which is facing away and not seen in photos.

Good morning all. I'm new to the site and am starting a Tamiya 1/350 Yamato 78014. This will be my first battleship but not my first model. I typically do sci-fi, but received this model from a Christmas party. I'm excited to begin work on her, but I have a question I hope the more experienced ship builder can help with. What are the best aftermarket parts for her? I keep seeing different sets of photoetch and wood decks but not sure of the best one. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

It's going to come down to how much you want to spend. Make sure you get the right set for that older version. Get on Ebay or watch the sellers thread on here for a good price.

This was taken more as an afterthought, sorry for the glare and lack of quality!

Thanks for posting this video, well worth watching indeed.

I don't know much about Musashi but there's at least one error in the video: the AA guns in the vicinity of the three main gun turrets wouldn't have been used while the main guns where firing: the blast of the main guns would have killed the AA crews instantly.
