My entry into the Watercraft Project contest! Also the first time I've tried anything resembling an interior. Please enjoy :)

EDIT: Now 50% of the screenshots are in-game ones in accordance with contest rules. I'm no photographer, so please forgive their rather Gonzo photographic style >.<



AU profile - Just as the Kii-class battleships were to the Nagato-class, the 三河 (Mikawa) class battleships were enlarged versions of the Number 13 battleship, adding both armour and firepower to the base design of the Number 13-class without compromising speed. The result is a class of extremely large battleships, longer than the Yamato-class and nearly as broad, which can bring to bear a fearsome amount of firepower to bear on any that dare oppose the Land of the Rising Sun.

You should have completed the interior. Though your layout looks nice.
Doing interior on fictional ships is really great, there's so much less constraint than doing replicas where space and oftentimes pictures of areas are scant.

Stern of the ship is kinda lame , but thats a magnificent design and interior! The armor schemeand boilers is a great touch , but would have loved turret interior.

Thank you for the compliment!

I'm still figuring out how to do the stern of a ship properly, I'm afraid. I find that I tend to build the stern a little too fine to fit that Yamato-esque quarterdeck on the end properly, so all you end up with is this rather compressed version. Add to the fact that the above-water hull is shallower than the Yamato, and the result is that there's not enough space vertically to cut into the hull to simulate a hanger either.

It's a bit of a problem when you have about 80% of the ship built and then realize the stern's too shallow. >.<
