Here is the really ugly and unfun to play Izumo from World of Warships. She is the IJN tier 9 and represents a sad excuse for a Yamato preliminary. Her three hull upgrades don't look too different aside from AA upgrades and the adding/replacing of 155mm triples and 127mm twins.

I WILL be posting a fourth version with my own improvements at some point.

Outstanding work, herr Tristan. Yay for you!

Indeed, very well executed, did you use one of Desk's flat renders?
Also how do you figure the ship carries Zuiuns?
If I had to complain about anything it would be about the shading at the very end of the stern, I would think that the shading there would converge up to a very thin shadow line.

Very nice Shigure almost makes up for how bad the ship is in the game.

How we use to say: "great drawing of an ugly ship!" :D, also, clever choice in choosing the bigger aircraft catapult, the space allows for it.

My only remark, if you allow me, is that the propellers look a bit on the small side. Since the ship is a fast one (30 knots in-game or I do remember it wrong?), I'd look for something bigger, like the Yamato herself (or even my AU Yashima) as reference for the propellers size.

on gamemodels3d.com her spotter aircraft consumable lists her as using an Aichi 16A 8-) And yeah I used Desk's render.

Izumo goes 28 knots ingame I think. The propellers are correctly scaled to the 3d model I traced.

As I said in the Dallas thread, WoW tends to wash over me.
This is an odd design, very well drawn in SB format, but as you say, it is a "sad excuse" for what might pass as an IJN battleship. At best you could say that its quirky.

I think it is world of warships idea of how the A-140 J1 battleship might look like:

It feels a bit 'retconned', as if it were designed with mystical foreknowledge that it might later be appropriate to cover the entire back half of the ship with a forest of light AA, relatively unencumbered by the main battery ;)

I am quite confident the IJN wasn't thinking in those terms at the time.

A nicely executed drawing, although the wing shafts feel curiously near the waterline. Yamato's unique boat hangar shielding arrangement on the stern quarters seems unjustified here, a feature carried over to a different design without a full understanding of what it was. I don't totally understand the curious curve to the front of the superstructure, and definitely I don't understand air inlets there. I would expect a very Nelrod-y arrangement to the bridge, lightly armored against her own blast.
