yes ,I'm asking because maybe they would be different after the trial of the fisrt 2 or correcting flaw in the initial design.

Since the battle cruiser design was unrealized, it's impossible to say. Everything is just conjecture.

Coming back to this project. I just realized that I was being an idiot and was viewing the Tosa casemates as flush with the rest of the hull....

...this is without her bloody armor belt. :doh_1:

I'm not sure about the accuracy of resin parts included from the bridge and above. The citadel is too short, based on the builder's models. To be honest, the entire structure seems like it's been modeled a wee bit compressed. Interestingly enough, my spare 1920's Nagato base seems more accurate and likely easier to bash into something approaching the base of Tosa's pagoda. I plan to scratch build just about everything above this, based on level-by-level drawings in "Battleships and Battlecruisers of 'Hachi Hachi' Fleet"
