Realy outstanding work Hood. These ships were in my mind the best looking of all post war ships built by the RN.
Apart from the comments above, there is one wrong fact in the drawing of HMS Kent.
This ship along with HMS Devonshire, HMS Hampshire and HMS London were all reffered to as 'batch 1' Counties, and that means the Type 965 radar was the single 'bedstead' antena (outfit AKE-1), and the Sea Cat directors were GWS.21 (looks like the CRBF director).

Absolutely amazing! Now, after the few remarks having been attended to, will you also make the Glamorgan? She's my favorite. Or, can I possibly have (humble) shot at her, as she looked like at the Falklands and post-Falklands. Are you also going to do the Chilean variants? In any case, both thumbs up for a badly needed and much linged-for revision of the old drawings here! Thank you!

The noted revisions are in hand;
New propeller shading
AKE-1 and GWS.21 aka CRBF (I should have changed that but it slipped through my qaulity control!)
A new and revised Sea Slug launcher as frankly its the original still with a few mods and looks pretty crap (sorry Bill it means more work for your AU work I'm afraid!)
EDIT: The original pics should refresh with new props, radar revisions and a totally new Sea Slug launcher and missile.
