S-511-66 was designed with the later twin 5"/54 (posted by ForceA1) in mind - not the 5"/54 Mark 41 twin (adapted from the single mounts aboard Midway).

Hello everyone,

Thanks for all the feedback and I will redo S-511-66 then. Or actually starting it in the first place. But at any rate, here is the S-511-1, a preliminary design for a proposed 10,000 tons cruiser that are modified CL-59 and CL-60. A clear forerunner to the Cleveland but still having design elements of the Brooklyn and St Louis. My first time not putting radar into a warship and I have a feeling that this drawing is particuarly sparse in detail.

Here it is, feedbacks are always welcomed. As for the 8100 Atlanta, should I change the guns or leave as is.

Anyway, thank you!

The USS Worcester before the USS Worcester. I did use the model on the USS Gary more than the actual USS Worcester since this drawing is based on a design made in 1943.

Thank You!

Cool stuff. I did the later scheme that became Worcester here: viewtopic.php?f=12&t=8574&p=181890#p181890

naturally those image links were dead (from the great archive wipe of 2018 :) ) but restored them all now

Nice work, that's an interesting design and good to see how it evolved into the cruiser we know today.

Hello,

My apologies for the mistakes! It would seem that I can't read a blueprint even if it's right in front of me and pretty much crystal clear at times. Though, what's wrong with the Mk 51 directors? The one behind the boat need to be changed I understand that but what's wrong with the other two that you have highlighted, @Colombamike? My apologies if the answer is simple. Also yes, I think I'm just bad at making deck clutter and trying too hard to copy the USS Gary as oppose to the Scheme J drawing.

Here's Scheme J again:

And now, here's Scheme A, the first of the Worcester preliminary designs:

Thank You

Hello,

Here's a preliminary design for the USS Des Moines, one dated for 1st of December 1943. Curiously, it's marked for the CA-139 to 143, which was eventually the USS Salem, a Des Moines-class cruiser.

Thank You!

Hello,

Here's a design probably better known as the USS Buffalo due to its presence in the decently popular game, World of Warships. Though not a one to one remake to the game's model, I will admit that there's not a small amount of overlaps between mine and the model in question. Also my first time doing top down view so if there's any problem with that, then please point them out.

The first one is painted in shipbucket colours while the second is painted in Measure 21. Both ships are depicted in 1945.

Thank You!
