it was announced on 1 April... <...>

Hadn't considered that. I hope it's real and not some stupid joke.
Cheers,

Not a joke. Just bad timing. Via The Modelling News.

Some things we do know:
1/ This is NOT an April fools joke
2/ The kit comes in 1/72nd scale, which is still massive - the  turret and kit is 50cm long from guns to the rear of the deck
3/ The nameplate included - we are not sure if the sister ship the Musashi is included
4/ However there ARE two marking choices included in the box - maybe one for each ship?
5/ The kit consists of injection moulded plastic for No.2 turret and platform

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.
