About this creation
Musashi, named after an ancient Japanese province, was one of two Yamato-class battleships built for the Imperial Japanese Navy, beginning in the late 1930s. The Yamato-class ships were the heaviest and most powerfully armed battleships ever constructed, displacing 72,800 long tons (74,000 t) fully loaded and armed with nine 46-centimetre (18.1 in) main guns. Her secondary armament consisted of four 15.5-centimetre (6.1 in) triple-gun turrets formerly used by the Mogami-class cruisers. She was equipped with six or seven floatplanes to conduct reconnaissance.
Musashi was torpedoed in early 1944 by an American submarine and forced to return to Japan for repairs where the navy greatly augmented her anti-aircraft armament. The ship was present during the Battle of the Philippine Sea in June, but did not come in contact with American forces. Musashi was sunk by an estimated 19 torpedo and 17 bomb hits from American carrier aircraft on 24 October 1944 during the Battle of Leyte Gulf. Over half of her crew were rescued.

Just ran across this superb ship, Locutus. Very strong work, with spectacular shaping and detail for size.

I like the stern but the smokestack is far too large.

Fantastic model! The colors, shaping and details are excellent, and I like your solution for the AA guns (its impressive that you could represent them at all at this scale). One suggestion to consider: It should be a fairly straightforward modification of this model to create the Shinano. I don't think I've ever seen that ship in LEGO bricks, so it would be a great addition to your growing navy.

Quoting Michal Hennel I was wondering when would I see a battleship from you, and my day has finally come. You surely know that Yamato-class ships were the biggest warships of all time, and probably the strongest one. I am quite sa d that most of battleships were either scrapped or sunk ... this is great work, maybe you could make HMS Hood or even Bismarck! 5/5
thanks Michal. Well first, thanks for the 5/5 rating but you didnt rate it really...^^ ;) second, I already build a Bismarck, too times! First an older moc and second v2.0 is here: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/377978
