Hi, I'm planning on trying to scratch build Takao and was wondering if anyone could give some help. I've tried to look online to get better ideas on her measurements and dimensions, but I'm left with just the general measurements of just the ship. I would just try to just wing it, but I'd like to make it realistic. If anyone could send me links or recommend books that can give me measurements of everything I'd appreciate it. I'm open to any advice about scratchbuilding it!

Good luck with that project. I did a thread on her once but could not find it. She and the Atago (in the game) are perhaps the most beautiful cruisers ever built IMHO.

I can offer a lovely painting of her though:

Update, finally got the book in and it's just amazing. Filled with so many pictures of the ship and tons of technical drawings of the ship. I really do recommend any enthusiast to buy these books. Hopefully I could make some progress 😁
