Soar Art Workshop is back with more very large scale offerings in the way of a 1/144 IJN Akagi and 1/144 IJN Shinano. Details are very sketchy as to what you get with these big flattops, but compared to what Soar Art has already shown us, we won’t be disappointed. More information to come as it is released.

Soar Art Workshop likes to do things big, really big. They shocked the ship modeling community with the release of their 1/144 KM Bismarck and now their going even bigger. Soar Art’s next big battlewagon is no other than the 1/144 IJN Yamato. This big kit comes complete with well detailed scout aircraft and even the crew, posed in both action stations and at attention for inspection. Details from the website are sketchy, although it is known that this appeared in their 2007 catalog. So, if you are a “big” fan of the Yamato, then this kit is for you.
