Can anyone confirm?
Posted by uspsjuan on Thursday, September 27, 2018 7:23 PM

I was watching a Youtube video of an Arizona build and towards the end the author mentioned Trumpeter might be producing a 1/200 INJ Yamato. Truth or fiction? Yes I know it will be big and expensive , but I like to build big. With all the kids out of the house I have an entire bedroom as a hobby room. So i have the room to build and display. Do I start saving or is this just a rumor?

Don’t know, but Nichimo did a 1/200 Yamato back in the 1970s.  So it is entirely possible.

I have searched the Trumpiter website , nothing about it there.

But I have heard the same "Rumor", just don't know where I heard it from.

If it does make it to production, it's going to cost around $300.

 Dont worry about the thumbprint, paint it Rust , and call it "Battle Damage".

It would make sense to me. They have produced the most well known battleships from all the major players except Japan. Why not? Just wish they would hurry up already. LOL

Well, They have the 18" gun Turret in 1/200 and now they also released a bridge:


I guess if we wait we can build the ship from parts as they piecemeal them out.

I recall earlier this year seeing a substantiated report that a 1/200 kit of Yamato wil be coming out-soon. However, I can no longer find that link.

Another post I was involved in stated: "Kitted by Wave (same Japanese company that released 1/200 Mikasa)..., moulded by Trumpeter ..."

 Maybe released for Christmas?

Well that's something. Buy 3 turrets, build them. Then buy the bridge and wait for the next part. LOL They are killing me with anticipation. A whisper here ,a rumor there. Toping my 1/200 wish list are the Yamato and the USS Regan. Working on the Missouri now . Have the Enterprise on pre-order and probably get the Arizona next. Love to build big!
