Great creation, has a realistic silhouette! LDD is really nice to use every piece you want, and it's great for planning future projects. Really love the hull shape, and the deck details are nice, too. Thanks for posting!

I would have guessed the Yamato. I think there's too much blank space on the deck and superstructure.
