Follow-up to the Amagi Class Battlecruiser (1920s). Modernization based on the final version seen in World of Warships.

Worked on from 9.05.2016 - 29.05.2016 - simultaneously with a Kii-class battleship and the 1920s version of the Amagi class battlecruiser.

Taken from Wikipedia:

The Amagi class (天城型, Amagi-gata?) was a series of four battlecruisers planned for the Imperial Japanese Navy as part of the so-called Eight-eight fleet. The ships were to be named Amagi, Akagi, Atago, and Takao (initially named Ashitaka),[1] after the mountains Amagi, Akagi, Atago, and Takao.[A 1] The Amagi design was essentially a lengthened version of the Tosa-class battleship, but with a thinner armored belt and deck and a modified secondary battery arrangement.[2]

Limitations imposed by the 1922 Washington Naval Treaty prevented the class from being completed as designed. However, the treaty had a limited allowance for hulls already under construction to be converted into aircraft carriers. Amagi and Akagi were both intended for conversion, but an earthquake damaged the hull of Amagi so extensively that the ship was scrapped. Akagi was reconstructed as an aircraft carrier and served with distinction as part of the Kido Butai during the Second World War, participating in the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor before being sunk at the Battle of Midway.

The version constructed in Minecraft follows the version seen in World of Warships, which notably mates the bridge of the Nagato class battleships after their modernization and the funnel of the Yamato class battleships.

Kii-class battleship; Super A Type Cruiser/B-65 Battlecruiser: and fictional British pocket battleship based on the G3-class battlecruiser to come in the near future.

Notes on construction: Built to scale. No interiors, I'm afraid. I have also refrained from using iron fences or cobblestone walls. I can't stand the texture of cobblestone in the default texture pack, and iron bars connect in ways I sometimes find inconvenient. I aim to stick to as few different types of blocks as possible when building, which makes it easier to change materials in MCedit for anyone may wish to change them after having downloaded this.

Texture pack used in screenshots is Sphax PureBDcraft.

Please give credit if you intend to use publicly. Otherwise, go have a blast. :)

Smoothed the interior of the hull to better reflect the external shape.

I'll be updating the build soon as this is a horribly rough piece from when I first started building >.<

I'm abroad at the moment, but I'll see what I can do when I get back next week. I'm no tech-wiz though, so hopefully it's not a problem that's too difficult to solve.

So, I ask this a LOT, does it have an interior?

No, unfortunately.

Firstly, I'm not that good when it comes to reading interior blueprints, especially as sources differ regarding the various spaces and their contents,- e.g. boiler shapes, magazine arrangements, deck arrangements, etc.,- and make it hard to render them in Minecraft.

Secondly, and especially with un-built ships and ships of countries where naval sources are unreliable or unavailable, such as Russia and Japan respectively, internal blueprints are either unavailable or completely made up.

This latter point makes it very hard to actually build interiors for ships. Either the interiors I find don't actually fit within the dimensions of the ship,- and I'm trying very hard to keep them within scale,- or the interiors are actually incomplete, and I don't have the engineering experience to arrange the interiors myself with any degree of accuracy or reality.
