Sorry to put a short history lesson into your subject. Your ships are okay, but as other have pointed out the bridge etc are rather low. The answer is "Height Is Vision". Before 1938-39 and the first fumblings of radar, the higher you could get your eyes with and without binoculars/telescopes the fu...

Looks good Paul.

I have trouble at my advanced age getting in and out of the low vehicles.

Good job GD, but a table of statistics would be nice rather than having to pick bits and pieces out of a wall of text.

Only thing that seems to be missing, Keisser, is some dates? Laid down, completed?

Lend Lease. France during the period 1940-1943, lost a lot of its Navy to events, some it could control and some it could not. The original main Naval base for the French fleet to be based at, after the fall of France, was Mers-el-Kebirr. The actions of the British Fleet in 1940 forced all of the Fr...

Where is Russia/USSR? They may not have built anything during this period, but they were certainly capable of doing so. They would have had the same 35,000/16" limits as everyone else. This would give another outlet for some original thinking and different types of ships/drawings to be produced. Eve...

I'm not sure if a cross deck catapult would work on your breadth of hull. Just measuring the UK cats off the Leander class (same timeline) are just over 50 feet on their turntables. The first crossdecks on UK ships are the Southamptons which were over 60 feet. The other problem of course is that you...

By keeping the rules simple - you will get more entries. And less people taking potshots at the rules as stated. Leave it at 35,000/16". The best of those dimensions were the two US classes. To make a faster ship than 26-27 knots you would have to reduce something - armour or gunpower or even both. ...

use the originals - but - use the updated turrets from the German Parts sheet. That old one Novice did does not compare to the later drawings. Which is the upper turret drawing in the drawings I posted. You might need to explain where Germany got another eight twin turrets from, to arm your two ship...
