I concur
- 1938 various studies (& the final one)
- mid 1942 never-were "carrier conversion"
- spring/summer 1943 "as completed" (Iowa/New Jersey)
- 1944 version
- early postwar versions (1947-1950)
- Korea war version (1950-1953)
- all never-were conversions studies (1950s to 1980s)
- New Jersey off vietnam, 1968
- all fours during 1980s after modernisation

Three days from starting the project to posting this is a bit short, don't you think? Are you sure most of this isn't just traced? ;) You'll have to forgive me if I ask a lot of questions:

I'm curious what the "cross" antennas are at the top masts...

You have two sizes of the SG radar on the drawing... the smaller one is the accurate one... but I would recommend checking all your parts against my big sheet.

The SK-2 radar you have is the old one which is way out of scale.

What is the contraption at the forward air defense level behind the Mk.38 director?

Why is the amidships Mk.37 trained fore-and-aft, while you seem to have drawn P&S-facing 20mm and 40mm guns? (I like the way these look)

The thickness of a lot of the staffs and poles around the stacks bothers me - I think most of these can be adequately represented with a single dark gray or black pixel line.

What are the various protrusions along the front of the fire control tower? I assume they are lights but they aren't very well defined.

All for now, I'm very sick and don't want to spend any more time staring at a screen. ;)

may I ask for the reasoning for an redraw? as far as I know, the one by Colosseum were pretty accurate and unless this one is from official plans and Colo's wasn't, a full redraw seems unnecessary.
