1/4800 FN BB Pack 2 WIP.3: Gascogne

French Navy's battleship Gascogne will complete FN.BB.Pack#2. As seen in WIP pics below, her design deviates from her sister ships in that her main guns are now located fore and aft (as compared to all guns mounted foreward).

Unfortunately, due to minimum wall thickness, I'll have to review the first 3 ships done (Richelieu1943, JeanBart1942 and Clemenceau). Gascogne should conform with the set minimum, of which, AFAIK, the rear aircraft equipments and various details needs to be added. All the gun barrels' tapers have also been removed to prevent aliasing along the slope.
