Space Battleship Yamato
Space Battleship Yamato In the year 2199, Earth is invaded by an extraterrestrial race known as the Gamilons, who hail from a dying planet and decide to make Earth their new home. The Gamilons proceed to rain radioactive bombs on Earth, rendering the planet's surface arid and uninhabitable (but hospitable for their race). Earth's space fleet is hopelessly outclassed by the Gamilons and all seems lost... until a mysterious space probe is retrieved on Mars. The probe contains blueprints, and a message from Queen Starsha of the planet Iscandar, who claims to have a device which can cleanse Earth of its radiation damage. The blueprints are of a supercraft that can enable any ship to head to Iscandar (situated in another galaxy) and back in a year, and with these plans the denizens of Earth secretly construct the Argo, a great space battleship. A small but intrepid crew of 114 departs for Iscandar in the Argo to acquire the device... but with the menace of the Gamilons, can they succeed in time?
About this creation
I thought I would include this reference pic from the TV series Space Battleship Yamato.



I'd like to thank EL Barto for gently nudging me into trying Photoshop for my backgrounds.


If you get a chance please check out Mark Rodrigues's amazing Yamato! It's absolutely brilliant.

Quoting Marty Fields Quite why these aliens would produce blueprints that just happen to resemble the WWII super battleship IJN Yamato, I do not know! Great detail at this scale.
Ha ha ha! I wish I knew. Maybe it was the only thing big enough to hold it. :-) still I've always loved the ships in these series. The tri deck carrier and the andromeda are two of my favorites.

Quoting Austin Chang I need to know. How did you attach the ship's pieces together and still attach parts on the top like lego? I love it!
I used a boat load of these modified bricks. This gives you studs on top and studs on the side. Hope this helps https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=30414#T=C

Thanks Scott! You can find episodes on YouTube, and Amazon caries boxed sets :-)

Quoting Morthen P This is the best Micro scale Space Battleship Yamato I've come across. Really well done, excellent details in such a small "space" hehe. Isn't the Decks underneath the main cannons supposed to be tan/wood'ish color ???
Thank you very much for the awesome comment. I built mine to the original cartoon. It always appeared dark grey to me. I did find one model somebody made with tan decks but it was a much later version of Yamato. I also saw published pics of Yamato with black decks too. I've never had a model of space battleship Yamato so I didn't have a paint chart

Quoting Raste Family Beautiful work! I just flashed back to waking up early to catch Star Blazers as a kid. The functional wings are my favorite.
Thank you so much. Me too. It used to be on early morning and than it was on after school. I use to race home to watch and start building the ship and reenact the episode I just watched. Good times. You can watch quite a few episodes on YouTube. Thanks for stopping by.

Quoting Henrik Jensen Amazing space battle ship! I really like the look of your ship with the curved sides, the bulbous bow and all the grebles of the superstructure. Excellent work!
Thank you so much my friend. I worked really hard on the hull. Especially the transition from the flared bow to the rounded hull. I was pleased with the results. I'm really happy with the bridge windows. It's my favorite feature.

Quoting Nirds forprez Great submission. Wonderful details. If I can add one opinion, however, is that the Lego building in this one is too awesome to not add more photos that focus more on just the Lego aspects of the build. All the photos added are really doctored so heavily that it appears there is more focus on the digital effects of the photos than the Lego techniques of your build. Don't take away the edited photos, they look great; perhaps just add some with a plain white background and some zoomed (again with white background) so we can see more of the Lego-ness of the build. Again, great job!
Thanks for your input . I got the same advice from Someone on flicker. I'm going to be uploading some more photos soon. Thanks again
