Micro Yamato

The smallest my hands can build!
This is a design of mine from six or seven years ago, so I decided to update it with new details, as well as a HaiFuri special.
Each model will be a 9.5cm long (equivalent to a 1/2770 scale) and the entire sets are comprised of YAMATO and MUSASHI in their 1944 and as launched configurations, respectively, in three variants - historical (general),「HaiFuri」Anime show, and Japan Coast Guard.
You need at least 40 minutes to build one.
Think you can build them smaller without forfeiting any of the details? Prove it!! ^^
You can get them here:

「HaiFuri」special: https://www.deviantart.com/megamoonl...t&ga_changes=1
Japan Coast Guard: https://www.deviantart.com/megamoonl...0%3A1543410378


Model pictured is YAMATO from「HaiFuri」.

Wow! You must have tweezers for fingers!

Am I the only one who thinks it's going to attack that bowl of peanuts?

I note, however, that the ships in their coast guard configuration are designated Patrol Ship Large Helicopter - but there are no helicopters!
I do demand helicopters !!!

Forget the fingers, that is too small for my eyes. You really set yourself a challenge and it looks like you exceeded it in every way. Great modeling!

The ship itself was already challenging, let alone putting helicopters in, at this point!... xD

Indeed eyesight too is tested to the limit for many; I myself am 31 years old and still have excellent eyesight I could even be put at the controls of a jet fighter, the ophtalmologist told me some six years ago when I went for my eyesight exam for driver's license that I had lynx-grade eyesight. ^^

Handy presentation

Howdy,

Here is an easy method
to show off the micro Yamamoto
so that it may be held and closely examined.
Parts page glued to thin cardboard and model spot glued.
