to see what the structural modifications are... 2 pics to compare
today I reduced the walls of the 6 top level AA 40 mm guns, first I straitened them as they go larger on base... so in reducing base I get more free space on the lower terraces next I scraped the inside of the tubs ... so I reduced them about 1mm ... in hole that makes something like 2mm inside circle diameter increase... on that scale... on the real ship that makes about 1.7 m ...

Great effort in this work.

It is always nice to recover things that have been done in our beginnings as modelers. I have recovered several ships, Hood, Prince of Wales, Indianapolis, Gneisenau, Takao and right now I am rebuilding the IJN Kumano that I made over thirty years ago and I hope to rebuild the IJN Yamato and the IJN Tone.

once all holes and structure changes done, I could glue deck on hull... what I did yesterday... now it had to be adjusted cause at certain places deck was up to 3-4mm larger than the hull... not an easy task as she doesn't go strait up... I had to give her the fluidity in curve change the real ship has

your black bootline is too narrow as should be at least double that width compared to what is on your model.
