Stunning work. The bar just keeps getting shifted higher.

Interesting that you can't see the main armament in the head on view. AA was a priority.

My lord Colo, you have truly taken these drawings to the next level!! The amount of detail put in is nothing short of amazing, along with the overhead, stern, and bow views. I can only imagine the amount of effort you have been putting into all of your newer drawings. Then again, the tools to do so have improved and I haven't looked into any of it for over 6 years. You are truly a SB master 8-).

Yes, I found myself strangely disappointed when the front views of the main battery disappeared behind the 40mm gun tubs...

This is GUAM (CB-2) in January 1945 at the conclusion of post-shakedown refit at the Philadelphia Navy Yard. GUAM is camouflaged in the "medium pattern" system of Measure 32/7C. This scheme applied a geometric pattern of Light Gray (5-L), Ocean Gray (5-O), and Dull Black #82 on the vertical surfaces, with White (5-U) countershading under overhangs to reduce shadow. Horizontal surfaces were painted in an alternating pattern of Deck Blue (20-B) and Ocean Gray (5-O). GUAM painted out of this camouflage into the familiar Measure 22 in early 1945.

GUAM's refit period at Philadelphia in late 1944 upgraded the existing Mark 8 "FH" main battery fire control radar to the improved "Mod.3" version -- this set is visible atop the Mark 38 directors. GUAM's Mark 37 directors are the later type with "cockpit" for the director officer's slewing sight. Otherwise, GUAM is nearly identical in fit to her sister ALASKA (CB-1).

GUAM would join Task Force 58 at Ulithi in March 1945, supporting strikes on the Japanese home islands and the invasion of Okinawa. Like ALASKA, GUAM would serve briefly postwar, touring ports in China and Korea before returning to the United States in December 1945. Decommissioned and put into reserve in 1947, GUAM would never be reactivated and was sold for scrapping in 1960.
