In the spring of 2012, I was hired to create 3D models of the iconic World War II Battleship “Yamato”. I have modeled everything that sits on the deck from 2D drawings as commissioned in 1941, that are contained in the incredibly accurate Anatomy of a Ship, book by Janus Sculski, including every detail, with the exception of rivets, railings, and some of the ladders. It has been a very long project, and I am happy to say that it is finally complete. These models include lighting of all four of the main decks, as well as, all of the 46cm guns can be articulated. All of the models have been printed on a Projet 3D Printer, at 144:1 scale.
The hull has been expertly crafted from scratch by Bob Muller of, Bob’s Boat Dock, in Tigard Oregon, which is driven by 4 electric motors, and remotely controlled.
