That is phenomenally impressive!  I love the wooden deck, it looks incredibly realistic, and the ship looks beautiful in the water.  :Smile_great:

that's in 2015? so what have you been upgrading with her for the past four years? and how do you lug something that big to the water? with one of those boat trailers or a pickup?

Probably upgrading her AA after her sister was lost to RC planes. :cap_rambo:

Nah, it would "just dodge"

On a serious note, does it have some kind of propulsion? If so what does it use?

Hi guys. I am still trying to figure forums out

She has 4 very large (coke can size) motors, drawing about 50 amps. I use 4 motorbike batteries for power, and get a few hours of sailing

She only goes out rarely, as its bloody expensive to do so, I have to rent a 3 ton truck, and almost inevitably, she gets damaged enroute. I much prefer the building to the sailing, take out Destroyers (Akizuki) when I want to sail

Thankyou for the kind comments. And there is a U tube clip, type in 1/72 yamato and you should find her

One thing I know for sure, World of warships have Yamato's maneuverability completely wrong (most of the capital ships are wrong). At scale speed , she turns on a dime, full astern, she stops quick . I took great care to model the rudder, hull and props accurately. Hard rudder, and hard ahead and astern  altogether is very revealing.  Also if you study photos you can see her maneuverability. (I could be wrong, this I admit I am only up to a Nagato, but what I see on U tube seems to show her as a elephant,) Others with large scale 1/72 warships  in the club also demonstrate that BBs turn far faster than modelled in the game

Anyway, thanks again, its fun seeing these magnificent ships modelled so well in digital.
