Looks quite good with a more classic arrangement of main guns.
If you like some suggestions, I'd raise the funnel a bit, getting it to the same height of the aft fire-control tower so the smoke can clear the aft director.

The older 1920s Tosa turrets look a bit out of place on a late 30's design but I have something to improve that look.

I've done this 16.1-inch gun turret for one oy my -yet to be featured- AU ships, you are free to use them in your drawing as well if you like.

Your radio aerials are interesting. Not a criticism, but an observation: how does gun house rotation of A, B, C and Y turrets to beam bearing affect the guying?

If he removes the radio antenna from the first main gu turret (right now it interferes end-on fire from the 155mm gun mount superfiring behind it) he'll' get a perfectly workable system. The point where the wires connect to the antennas on top of the turrets can swivel, it's the same setup as the IJN Yamato

And that in RTL did not work off in San Bernardino Strait and off Samar when Yamato's aerials snarled and her radios failed. Just sayin.

hindsight is forbidden when drawing never build designs. :P

The armour belt may need a little bit of tweaking. You have four holders on the back half of the belt but only a bit of one on the front half. Either there would be four on the front half as well, or delete all the holders.

I really appreciate the turrets!

I've removed the antenna from the number two turret and increased the height of the funnel.

I this this design, its a nice take on a more realistic battleship than some of the super-Yamato designs we normally see.
