I recommend reading, or at least skimming, the paper. One interesting note is that we ought to try to represent segmented lightning diverters on the satcom dome on I-Mast, as in aviation practice. http://lightningdiversion.com/home/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/strips_one.png http://www.cascadethermal....

Some sort of active sidelobe monitoring? But they seem in structure and form much more like a VHF antenna - there's little to indicate to me there's any S-band 'nub' on the end. large image And if they were for this purpose, why not have them either at the center of the antenna in height, or duplica...

Does anybody know the nature of the quartet of diagonal poles on the 'shoulders' of the SAMPSON dome? I've often wondered about this.

Do you know what is the nature of the extensive glazing along the O-6 level? It's not "wrong" per se, but I don't recall seeing anything similar on other ships of the period.

The quad pair (?) of 4.5" BD mounts is also sort of strange.

Well-drawn, though!

Ooh, I've been wanting to see this concept illustrated for many years. A truly bizarre proposal (although "proposal" might be too strong a word).

Speaking for myself, I have little to say. They're excellent drawings. I think it's harder to get much appreciation for the nature of a historical AU (c.f. leut_east's splendid modern-day Australian forces). Too much scrolling from page to page to try to remember what changed when! I only think the ...
