|Notes||RM Francesco Caraciolo|
I found the following drawing from Garlicdesign in my Italian battleship section. So I did a WW2 update to add to this Caraciolo page. The biggest difference is in the size of the ship. The real Caraciolo is 696 feet long to GD's 615 footer. Quite a change.
Above - as completed 1922, below - as refurbished 1937-39.
I must say that having Garlicdesign's drawing to work from does improve the quality of the finished product.
