    Well, it has been planned that the O battlecruiser* will be built. I'm wondering about stringers, and where to put them. In the the plans that I have, I can see the amour belt, and am wondering if that means that I get a stringer?
    Thanks,

    * I wish the German would have given her a real name, so I wouldn't have to right O-class battlecruiser every time I want to talk about her. :D

    Does the armor belt in question stick out from the hull?

    In the plans, you can see a difference in the lines, so yes. :)
    Look up: O class battlecruiser plans, to see what I'm talking about.

    does the shape of the hull dictate?

    I looked at the plans I found online, and it didn't look like it stuck out.

    The line on the hull, that is the armor belt. I guess it's probably too small to really be worth putting a stringer in there, eh?
