I have a question about Akagi and Kaga in their 3-deck configuration. It looks like the navigation bridge is directly under the forward end of the upper flight deck, between the 8" twin mounts. Does this block aircraft access from the upper hangar to the middle flight deck? I know the middle flight deck was short and of limited use, but was it made inaccessible by design or was this bridge built later? Or does the bridge move or open in some way?

In that configuration, up forward, there is a lower flight deck, a bridge deck, and an upper flight deck. The upper hangar deck is the same level as the bridge deck. So, no flight ops off that deck. The forward lift divides the space between the bridge and the hangar deck.

So was there never a configuration where the middle flight deck was usable for flight ops? Did they decide it wouldn't be useful while the ships were still under construction?

No, never such a configuration. I think it would have been unworkable, given the need for a sizable bridge and the heavy turret armament.

Thanks, shame really I was looking into building one of these and I thought it would be cool to have a plane launching at every level. Not that it really diminishes the awesomeness of their appearance. :cool_2:

Is their a replacement set for the twin 12cm guns available for the Akagi?
I want to built the Irako and perhaps an Ukuru Escort and they had the same gun.
But the pitroad gun is more than basic and fivestar only made a set for the single gun.

Greetings Christian

I don't know of any others. It's possible that there may be a 3D printed version available somewhere.

Thanks Gerry, new barrels will help.
But I was thinking of a complete replacement.

Ok thanks Dan,
it looks I need to make a good old scratchbuild to enhance the guns :big_grin:
