I don't love this rendering of SPQ-9B (it looks a little "fat" to me), but otherwise it's an excellent drawing.

The L-series is very attractive, although I question the use of four shafts on L18. Cheaper (both in cost and in hull volume) to use two larger screws.

...Is 1231 a submersible hydrofoil?

Certainly a unique concept. Even as a child, I never had such an active imagination!

What Hood said.

I don't see anything I would change. It's an excellent drawing.

I don't think unguided heavyweight torpedoes were ever envisioned in this era, so the limited train of the tubes would not pose any operational limitation. The top view of the ostensibly-unobstructed tubes on an Udaloy suggests they can't train past 45deg anyway, being blocked by the shape of the de...

These are fine drawings. Circa 2019 a Shipbucket drawing down to the waterline looks weird and incomplete, but I appreciate the motivation to only draw what we know, rather than making stuff up.

The sort of masterwork I've come to expect. As usual, I've learned a lot from the accompanying text.

At this scale, as far as I'm concerned it's a perfect drawing. There's nothing to add, and nothing to remove.

It's remarkable how developmental ships were in this era, that a class of half-sisters might not even have the same number of shafts!

A very nice rendering, if somewhat non-standard. I like the shadows on the navigation lights in particular, and the screw is maybe the best variable-pitch unit I've seen. I think I would render antennas and ECM arrays somewhat differently, though. The VHF and especially the long HF whips are general...

I'm still not sold on the prop shafts. Here's the builders plans of Midway in '87. I find it hard to believe they would have changed the prop set up in the SCB upgrades, but who knows? What source do you have for this? Some years ago, I toured Midway in San Diego and noted with some surprise that a...
