So far, so good, but you did miss a trick ... you could have used a map of the South-East and listed "Here be dragons!" for everything above the Watford Gap...

Hi KWAM, First, welcome to shipbucket! That's a very well executed kitbash, I do like the stabiliser thing. I do have a query about that rear Sea RAM placement, though - I'd be worried both about the amount of spray it's going to be eating, even back there, and also about direct wave damage, being s...

From what I understand, it's more due to costs and production - if you look at BB lifecycles starting with Dreadnought , which started out with 12" guns, five turrets. The RN then went through a period of shuffling turrets around a bit, starting with the Neptune class, until they got to the Orion -c...

I suspect it's an exaggeration, but Hitler's Germany was characterised by infighting and inefficiency - what mid-WWII efficiency there was in Germany seems largely to have been due to Hitler giving it to Speer and letting him get on with it.

Hi Hexelarity, You probably want to go here: http://www.shipbucket.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=46#p21325 for this: http://i215.photobucket.com/albums/cc316/Novgorodsfleet/00Rusarms-2.png I'm no expert on soviet kit but I think the radar sets on the gun side are largely surface radar. Unless, I'm...

@Obsydian Shade

Yeah, that's one of the great get-out-of-jail cards with the IJN ... even if you do end up with a ship that's marginally stable, you can always turn around and say it's in character with the rest of the early IJN stuff!

Hi all, Well, after a long train journey and a hotel room without decent internet access, I've finally been motivated to start on the drawing ... I've jigged the SpringSharp around a little and I'm a little concerned about topweight as a result - basically, moved two of the amidships 6" automatics t...

Hi both, A couple of points: First, I should have clarified - when I said "strategic bomber" I was thinking "strategic" in the WWII sense, something along the lines of a B-25 or a B-26 platform. I doubt that you'd be able to build something a B-17 could use, much less a B-29, but that's still a usef...

@citizen lambda, Surely you'd be off-loading the fancy kit (I'd thought about carrying something that the 1940s engineers would find simply jaw-dropping like a CNC rig or some UV lithography gear to get them past the electronics of the 1960s and jumped straight into something a bit more solid - the ...
