I'm going to guess the Yamamoto or it's sistership (can't remember the name) - big suckers, had 18 inch guns

Spelling was off - correct spelling is Yamato, the sistership was the Musashi. 862' long, 121' beam, 9 18.1 inch main cannons, displacement ~ 71,000 tons, 2800 crew.

Both of these ships were sunk by US aircraft. I'm guessing that the model is the Musashi:

Quote:
In June 1944, with the torpedo damage repaired, Musashi took part in the Battle of the Philippine Sea. Her next, and last, major operation was the Battle of Leyte Gulf, in which the Japanese surface navy made a final major effort to repulse the U.S. drive into the Western Pacific. On 24 October 1944, while en route to the prospective battle area off the Leyte landing beaches, Musashi and her consorts were attacked by hundreds of U.S. Navy carrier aircraft. In this Battle of the Sibuyan Sea, she was hit by some nineteen torpedoes and seventeen bombs. Though her heavy protection withstood this massive damage to a degree probably unsurpassed by any other contemporary warship, Musashi capsized and sank about four hours after she received her last hit.
