Excellent drawings, with a chance to learn something too.

Sorry, I meant 6/53, not 6/47. My point remains that I think a unified 5/38 secondary battery would be more likely and more practical.

IMHO, by 1943 a more likely (and definitely more achievable) secondary armament refit would replace the 6/47 triples with 5/38 twins, and replace the eight 5/25 open mounts with six to eight (not sure amidships) single 5/38 pedestal mounts, probably Mk 12 . This would mean you wouldn't need to rip u...

I do not think shipwreck war graves are considered "improper" resting places by those who have a horse in the race, although I apologize if I mis-speak for our colleagues who were or are in uniform.

Depends on what you're trying to achieve. As I understand it, NS100 offers surface gunfire support and midcourse guidance updates for active SAMs. Maybe go active-ESSM only and ship a single LIROD or Ceros 200 for 57mm GFCS. Then all you'd need is ESM, ECM, and whatever satcom and radio you think ar...

This would seem like an ideal application of an integrated system like NS100, although from what I've seen Thales is being pretty cagey about the abovedecks mast - merely saying (in effect) "less than Smart-S Mk 2".

Aside from the rather spindly helo deck substructure, I think these are super attractive little OPVs, and well-drawn too. The only things I'd change if it were my drawing are the (IMHO) outdated standard window color and RHIB.

Interesting note about Measure 22 noncompliance - I've never painted a ship before, but I suppose it's easier to follow a sheer line (perhaps the painter is hanging from the deck?) than to follow the DWL.

Something else I never figured I'd learn from a Shipbucket drawing...

I'll be a stick in the mud - I mostly like the hull shading! I like how the darker shades show how Ocean is very ship-shaped at the waterline, but very building-shaped a short distance higher. At first glance the brighter shade at the waterline seemed odd, but this image (wiki) actually seems to sho...

I love this drawing series. The compromise between design detail and drawing clarity (and adherence to Shipbucket standards as appropriate) is excellent.
