Re: Weird stuff you thought about ships, but then found was totally wrong?
The Pyro 1/1200 Yamato was copied from the Aurora and had the different turret arrangements too.
When I was a child, I got the Aurora kit of Yamato. It has the midship triple turret on one side and the 5 inch AA guns on the other side. I also got a plan which showed the same configuration. I didn't understand that this plan showed the original fit and the later fit. So for years I was convinced that the Japanese were building real strange ships.
(I am still not quite sure if Aurora didn't make the same mistake.)
