It's a 3 faces radar, they should perhaps be around 50+deg, don't have the number in my head, how do US mount there 3 faces. It would not be hard to look up, but it's easier to do the math and recognize that you probably want even coverage across 360deg of azimuth, 360/3 is 120, and thus the radars...

I still don't have a good feeling for what the various fixed radar/radio apertures are for. Their fields of view give the impression that the superstructure was designed first, then it was "filled in" with apertures that seemed about right. One glaring example of this is the low, wide aperture on th...

These are excellent drawings. Although I can't say I love them... I'd forgotten just how austere the Type 42 was, especially in early batches.

A fairly remarkable example of the mantra of "steel is cheap, air is free".

Wow, this is an incredible drawing. I need to poke around and see if I have any deeper thoughts, but that's my initial reaction. Wow.

It feels like 2006 was yesterday! Yes, these drawings and designs are flawed and broken in various ways, but I enjoy discussions of where Shipbucket used to be.

It cracks me up that these use the (in my mind) "new" SLQ-32 :laughing:

It's a two-way street! Lots of "why didn't I think of that?"

That note about engine count is very interesting. I never gave it much thought, but it makes sense.

As a drawing, it's nicely executed. I think the concept is more than a little far-fetched for reasons we can discuss if that's of interest.

I did not vote in this challenge, thinking I would be unable to be objective and not play favorites. Rather than give numerical scores, here are my thoughts (worth exactly two American cents) on each submission. Hopefully we are all getting to be better thinkers and artists as the community continue...

Inevitably, I had to continue to revise my challenge entry after the submission deadline. So as to avoid another stupid-long post, I refer the reader to the initial submission for most discussion, and will only discuss revisions in this post. https://i.imgur.com/2o6kmrw.png First, the outright goofs...
