Now it just needs BuOrd's proposed follow-on... There were plans made to replace the twin turrets on new ships with a triple fully automatic DP mounting similar in concept to those for the 8"/55 (20.3 cm) Mark 16. These were expected to be able to fire 20-25 rounds per minute per gun compared to 12 ...

I especially like this shades-of-gray rendering of SPS-40. At scale, it really does look like a low-frequency antenna's moiré patter.

Much better than the old gray-white-gray-white approach.

Those SH-3s are magnificent.

All of this talk of telescoping topmasts is interesting. Was this a particular focus of the Worcesters (being very big for cruisers, perhaps they needed help fitting into traditionally cruiser berths, or something), or does this instead reflect your ever-deepening mania for research? ;) I know, what...

Magnificent! I dared not hope you would be drawing these, as they do violate your post-WW2 rules ;) The SR-2 is very much better than my old, feeble effort. As I look at the thing zoomed in, it's truly at the limit of how much detail can be packed into this scale. I'm not quite sure when Shipbucket ...

Splendid work. To the modern eye (like, WW2 modern!), it's remarkable how much emphasis was put on ship's boats being easily handled, while the secondary armament might be unworkable in a seaway. The almost total lack of peacetime conning arrangements is discussed extensively and interestingly by Fr...

Personal preference, but I prefer diesel exhausts that are cut off perpendicular to their direction :)

Very lovely tug otherwise.

It should be emphasized that these were very preliminary sketches, akin to Spring Styles. Design concept exploration shouldn't surprise us, even if the eventual ship wouldn't make a ton of sense.

Interesting, and maybe the oldest Shipbucket representation I can remember. Arguably more fit for FD scale ;)

The rump #2 stack just looks so stupid! I love it! I wonder how SCANFAR would like being so close (several feet!) to the #1 stack. All that heat, it... it couldn't be good, right? I had no idea these had a helo amidships, or I had forgotten. It looks rather exciting, and surely in service it would b...
