YAMATO-Class

Post by BayonetOnAZero » 24 Oct 2023 19:35

Does anyone has images of the YAMATO-Class (YAMATO, MUSASHI, SHINANO (possibly? I know there was only 3 images but perhaps there might be more?)) that I could see? Popular images are okay but less well-known images would be preferred too.

It is said the below photo is the only photo of Shinano that remains. It is owned by 福井静夫 Fukui Shizuo, a shipbuilding technical officer in the IJA and worked as a naval researcher after the war. In the photo, she is in her right turn and we can see the tilted flight deck. The below of the photo is a sketch of Shinano drawn by Fukui.

Thank you fontessa! The first photo shown is the third photo taken of SHINANO and is the most well known one, correct?

There are two aerial views of her: she made a 'cameo' in a photo taken during a patrol flight by a Japanese aircraft showing her in drydock during construction, and the other was taken during a flyover of Yokosuka by a B-29.

Yeah, I’ve seen both of them on the internet but the one of her in dry dock has an arrow that points at her that was edited in that annoys me.
