Hey all! 

Due to this post, I wanted to make an Izumo based on specs outlined in the article that looked good, so here we are! 

I put a longer version of Yamato's bridge on her, deleted the citadel conning tower, added numerous 25mm guns, staggered and elevated the 127mm in such a way that it keeps all 6" secondaries, etc. etc. 

Sorry if it's off, I had to essentially scratch build the fore and aft ends off of a Hiraga shipbucket design. Personally I think it looks a little long, like a carrier with guns, but oh well.

If we could have something akin to this in the game I still wouldn't re-buy the Izumo but it seems like it would add a lot of survivability in the way of air attack, a higher HP pool, and a nice view to look at as you get HE spammed to death.

That thing looks beautiful, would definitely add some (much-appreciated) pleasure to my grind.

If it's only cosmetic, I think WG should consider it, Izumo's superstructure looks terrible... but if all the weapons stay in the same places then it should at least strike more fear in the hearts of the Allies

If only WG had done it sooner, I would have still kept it and not have replaced it with the Nelson.

Nice work. I believe I am one of the weirdos who actually enjoyed Izumo, so I'd love to see that version even more. The deck always looked too empty to me.

Good work.

From the rear she always looked like a super heavy seaplane tender (which she was):

You could put 4 tennis courts on that rear deck. I always liked her and gave her the nick "The Big Wedge." I'm sure I'll get her back some day, hopefully regroomed like yours.

I could get behind this for the beefed up secondary batteries. I've never been able to figure out why WG couldn't find space to keep all of the 155mm guns on the C hull. I do have to admit to being the weirdo that actually likes Izumo's superstructure, well, at least the bridge tower. To me, it is an interesting midpoint between the Nagato-style septipod mastwork and the Yamato/Hiei-style tower mastwork.

Forget Tennis courts you could put a nice fight deck and some bombers on Izumo with all that large and empty deck space...
