Yeah at $250US.....I would track down one of the old Yamato kits.
While it says it is all new tooled, they said the same thing about their M1 Super Sherman that came out a couple of months ago. While it had new parts, it shared alot of parts with some of their older Shermans, and I have no doubt that this new Yamato kit is the same, in that it shares parts from the old kit.
Reports are just in that there is a world shortage of PE parts! Early indications say that ComfotablyNumb has run away with it all and has hidden it on his TOTALLY FRIKIN' AWESOME BOAT!!!!
Fantastic job man!
