As for size, I think it looks good, although considering some of the scout "cruiser" designs the US came up with around 1914/15/16 period, this is rather small. I reckon a commisioning date around 1913/14, although I could make it earlier, let's say 1912, without having to change any features. As fo...

So, I've started working on a light cruiser class for the US. Seeing as how the US entered the WWI period without any modern cruisers, I naturally, must correct this. Seeing as there are no actual designs for such a ship, I have to come up with everything my self. I would like some of your input on ...

Armor? The same. I did consider making the armor increase uniform, instead of just adding it to the front half, but that would add far more than "just" 5000 tons of extra armor. I've thought about doing that, and adding bulges straight away, sacrificing 2 knots in 1920 is better, and gain a couple o...

It is compensated by keeping the original design draft. Irl the Hood was weighted down so much that water swamped the quarter deck. By slightly increasing the Hood's overall deck height by roughly one meter (3pxls,) I can have the draft a little bit deeper than in real life. Some drawings have the H...

More or less. It will be a sort of "cut down" version of the Admiral class, but with 8x16" guns and much more armor. The idea is that it is a response to the Nagato and the Colorado.

Because I might play with it a bit in the future, here is the HMS Hood as commisioned in 1920. Now you might be thinking, what is different about the Hood? Well, apart from using the same turret as the earlier ships, I've corrected the single, biggest flaw of the Hood; the non existing freeboard at ...

I've taken off the hull plating and the maple leaf. https://i.imgur.com/xocHHr9.png I've also done an alternate Revenge class. The QE class was designed for 25 kts speed, but ended up overweight, and could only do 23 kts. The Revenge was designed to be a longer, improved version of the QE class, wit...

Officially it became the flag in 1965, but has been a symbol of Canada since the 1700s, at least according to wikipedia. Do you guys think I should keep the hull plating, or is it too distracting?

I've finished on the first of the Canadian QE class battleships; the HMCS Acadia. The Acadia replaces the HMS Agincourt. Two more would follow. The Quebec was commisioned in 1918, and the Ontario would be commisioned in 1923. The last two were heavily delayed by the war, and the need for more escort...

Thanks for the kind words. I am currently working on the semi-realistic notion that Canada would have 3 QE class ships built for them. In real life, the parliament voted against this. So I am wondering, are there any modifications that might have been made to make them better suited for Canadian use...
