    the ship was scaled down to 1:350 so I couldn't print anything that was quite detailed- notable example is AA mount, which has shorter barrel of 130mm turrets.
    the hull has 5 sections and is plastic welded inside with glues, so it is waterproof (I have tested it), however, there are gaps between deck and hull since deck/superstructure part is screwed into the hull.

    this is my college graduation project for electrical engineering technology major- I will be converting the ship remote controlled.

    the camouflage pattern- the patterns were actually inspired by one in game "World of Warships".
