Installed prior so they could construct the building around it, and finished on location.

What gets up my nose is that, in this country is no corresponding celebration of our great naval tradition.  A few preserved warships and museums which are mostly very good.  Given that Yamato didn't have a brilliant naval career compared with a ship like Ark Royal we sadly lack a comparative museum for British Naval achievement.

(That said it's one H*ll of a model!)
