First, Some background:
In this anime from 1973, the Earth has been rendered practically impossible to live on, with humanity losing a war to evil aliens who have destroyed our entire space force, and are bombarding our planet with radioactive asteroids.
We get a message from another group of aliens, from the Greater Megallanic Cloud, providing plans for an FTL drive and saying they will give us a device that can rejuvinate our planet.
To save time, the “star force” decides to convert an old, sunken battleship (The Yamato from the Second World War) into a spaceship, and go to get the “cosmic DNA device” (which can fix our planet.)
What I want:
a model of this (IMHO) really cool looking ship
(If you want to make it a vehicle, that’s cool too, but don’t work yourself too hard, for someone who you don’t know :P)
