Anime - Japanese Animation
Baka - Japanese word for idiot or fool
Loosely put an Anime Baka is someone who's crazy about Anime. However interpretation's may vary. I tend to think of Anime Baka as meaning something like drooling fan boy/girl.
Wrote this a long time ago. Too short for an article:
Perverted - Hentai in Japanese. But the word pervert means deviation from normal or accepted. So, how can all guys be perverts?
Did you ever notice that the sex scene in the movie is generally at about the same realative place as the guitar solo in a song?
IJN Haguro - Myoko Class Heavy Cruiser
I recently bought a very old (20+ years) ship. It is a IJN Myoko Class Heavy Cruiser that I have decided to call the Haguro because I like the history of the ship. There were four ships built in this class. The ship came with an ancient HPA system. It is apparent that the ship was converted from two fast gun styled fixed guns to a single fixed gun forward and three torpedo tubes on each side. The ship was built with the torpedo tubes in her pre-refit position (refit 1935-36) midway up from the waterline on the side of the hull. The class is listed as Nachi Class in Conways "All the Worlds Fighting Ships 1922-1946".
Here are some pictures of her before (and after) any work was done on her:
How she looked before paint - Photo Stitched Together
How she looked before the Sept 7th battle
Stern/Rudder - Look how much space is here. I could park all the servos here with a little work!
Torpedos/HPA/Servos/Motors/Accumulators - Look at that ancient HPA tank!

* Have forward gun flat forward to 45-90 degrees to each side. Then have it depress back to over the shoulder shots 135deg max is about right. So if you need depression you just turn the guns far back and fire. Use some sort of ramp to depress as the gun turns. This idea sounds solid good for putting holes into torpedo ships as they make torpedo runs.
