Top


The 2 dual 40mm on the bow (each cheese slope represents a dual 40mm mount)


More 40mm mounts


A and B turrets (Triple 355.6mm)


As usual they can rotate and elevate,


Max Angle


Forward superstructure.


Bridge


The 127mm (5"). As you can see there are 2 dual and 3 single 5", if i had the parts i would have made every one of them dual turrets.


Forward superstructure from the back


Forward Communication and spotting tower (Too tall? i agree)It should have been about 4 studs instead of 10. Also just below the tower is the forward FCS


Smokestack


From the other side


Here you can see the rearmost 127mm turret and the rear FCS


Aft Tower, this one is about 2 studs too tall.


C and D turrets


As usual, they rotate and elevate


Aircraft elevator, crane and catapults


As you can see, the hangar


Catapult rotated to launch position


Rearmost 40mm mount


The rudders and propellers

Random views:










The original design:


As you can see, some changes have been made, the two smokestacks have been merged, The turrets are a bit taller than i would like them to be and lastly, i already mentioned the 5 dual and 6 single 127mm instead of 11 dual.

Also check out 1961 modification: DNS Skiron mod.1961

Quoting Achintya Prasad Not bad Manthan! I agree on the comm towers; they should be shorter. Also, I would make the main cannons a bit longer; they seem a little too stubby when compared to the turret and the other guns. Otherwise, nice work!
About the main guns, it's a limitation of building at this scale, the lenght is about right, however the diameter of the 1x1 brick is too large :P
 I like it
