1/500 Bandai Space Battleship Yamato

I really enjoyed building this kit as it allowed me to do both panel lining and some very small painting of the figthers that sit on the base.

The only main advice I can give with the build is there are a lot of small parts like the side weapons and the fins, so take great care not to break them or catch the edges. This is why I left a lot of the fins off till right at the end after doing the panel lining with moving and touching the kit a lot.
