I'd say they might need to be spaced at least as much as the ones just forward and aft the central pair.

If I can suggest something more, maybe some more porholes along the hull? example

OK, any better on the spacing?

And yeah, I got caught up in other things and forgot to add some portholes. Silly Human. :oops:

I believe the center casements guns are now better spaced, IMHO.
As to the portholes issue, it might be a good idea to add some on the hull itself. Also consider adding an admiral's walkway on the stern.

Possibly not, but I'd randomize their spacing a bit, now they look a bit too regular which is not seen on ships as they are placed according to nternal compartimentation.
the HMS Dreadnought drawing I've linked a few posts above is a good reference on the matter.

Overall, it's looking good. :D

I'm with BB1987 here about the portholes. Also I would like to add that having portholes below the wing turrets is unlikely. Portholes are weak spots in hull and having a weak spot in front of a turret seems unwise.
I would also think about adding portholes under the forecastle (above the anchors), this is the traditional berthing place of the lowest of the seamen (at least in the Royal Navy, which is clearly the main influence on your designs here).
