In 1925 she received a refit at the Arsenal de Marinha do Rio de Janeiro:

Welcome and good luck with the ships,
Re Bahia, would the rudder stick down blow the keel?

Believe it or not, there's only one blueprint of Bahia. It's the one you upload here.

I believe it. There are NO surviving official drawings of HMS Exeter (apart from the very first red ink minor amendments to a December 1927 drawing of York still with three funnels)

Nice work, but the Bahia you drew is wrong, according to the "only blueprint". You drew the ship with three funnels and the blueprint shows her with two. As far as I know she was built with three funnels, but when modernized with oil fired boilers she had only two funnels.

Actually, it's the inverse, AFAIK. Two funnels when built, three funnels when modernized.

Hi pepembr.
Good drawing. May I ask you why the rudder is so low in relation with the keel? And also if the actual guns had the barrels so long (in relation with the torpedo tubes)? Cheers.

Reytuerto, the Brazilian Navy used and specific 120 mm cannon, with 50 calibers instead of 40 calibers used in Royal Navy. About the rudder, I used the blueprint as reference.
