It looks like the time index got stripped out when I post.
Go go 21:18 to see the hatch placement. Sadly, this forum has no ability to post pictures so I cannot post a blueprint for comparison.
I guess I am pretty dumb because even though I have been on three Iowa-class ships, and watched this lengthy video from start to finish, I can't seem to identify what you are finding fault with.
But, as you can see, your post has generated a lot of interesting discussion.
I am in general agreement with everything that has been posted thus far.
Here is an example I found searching Youtube
The photo etch has the hatches symmetrical off the centerline.
In reality, the left hatch is 11-3/4" off the centerline so that the centerline passes through it.
The right hatch is 5'-3" off the centerline so it is nowhere near it.
