Sorry to hear about your offline news, Blackbuck. Your T43/13 is pretty attractive. I do think it suffers from a paucity of illuminators -- I know that the WM20s each offer a channel, but it's an uphill climb with such a small aperture. As I understand it (I don't recall the source), the FFG-7s foun...

Both interesting concepts and well executed from an artistic perspective. I think the Tribal is particularly well-shaded, effectively showing shape without being overdone. Canadian ships of the period certainly had some interesting shaping to ward off icing. Was Type 984 really a plausible fit as la...

Quite lovely, and I agree this will be one to watch. For what it's worth, I think an all-3" secondary is much more likely. It's worth looking at some of the torpedo boats of the time and impressing upon yourself just how small they were. Secondaries smaller than about 4" did rapidly lose effectivene...

Better you than me! But having put in the time and effort, thanks for sharing.

Sources frequently do not indicate whether they refer to navigational draft (i.e., over the sonar dome) or the keel draft. It's better to work off of plans you trust. In addition to others' comments, I think the electronics fit is pretty sub-optimal. Concentrating all of those systems on a single ma...

APRAPS is not an acronym I'd seen associated with that effort, so that'll be a useful google term in the future! It's a nicely-drawn effort, although in common with a lot of paper sketches from that era, it seems stupendously overloaded with combat systems and electronics. Nearly as bad as some begi...

I certainly have nothing to add. It's excellent work, inching right up to the line of what might be over-detailed at this scale.

Much improved, although I'd apply the new window color to your airplane layer as well :)

Off the top of my head I can't think of any ships built with SPG-60 alone, but designers frequently positioned SPG-60 and SPQ-9 so that one covered a bow arc and the other a stern arc. Some never-built sketches show only one or the other. Certainly it would have been possible to only include SPG-60.

Certainly well-drawn and attractive, and generally sensible I think. Three ASW thoughts. First, the little "doors" below the pilothouse are blow-out plates for an ASROC magazine. Since you have no ASROC forward, these are inappropriate ;). From a sensor point of view, I'd expect a (more modern versi...
