so asking the dumb question as one who hasn't known the pleasure that is LEGO since oh......longer than i'll admit.....
How do these wonderful creations come about? are the parts custom made? Is it an actual kit you can buy?
I still have several hundreds (thousands) LEGO pieces safely stored...
I think (and see) that they used standard LEGO bricks combined with some specialized LEGO sets (in order to get some specific items like gun tubes)... for example that is visible on "Fuso" model... the "Yamato" model, on the other hand, uses standard long bricks for gun tubes...
