Super Mechanics: Space Battleship  Yamato  Mechanic File Clear Version
Space Battleship Yamato MEchanic File: Clear Version! This is the entire 8 piece set of the Battleship with transparent parts... the 8 configure the entire craft!

The inspiration for the Yamato Mechanic File was the same as that for Space Battleship Yamato itself: the original battleship. When the hit film Men of Yamato hit Japanese cinema in 2006, it was followed by a wave of Battleship Yamato merchandise, including a trading figure set that allowed you to piece together a model of the ship from the inside out. Bandai went the next logical step and created the Mechanic File, which was divided up into eight sections all sold as individual blocks that could be pieced together into a 15" model, just a little shorter than a 1/700 scale kit.

Mechanic File Clear Version (April, 2006) Shown above right, this variation was identical to its predecessor on the inside, but the exterior parts were molded entirely in clear plastic for a constant "cutaway" view. The original was so complex that removing any single piece usually required a long reassembly, so some fans may have been relieved to get the clear version instead.
