Thank you Gd, I've got the GK 4541, GK 4542 and L 21 a to finish redrawing and the L 28 to complete. I'm not sure what's on the stocks after that.

That layout does not make much sense with twin turrets. If those were triple, or quad turrets, it would make sense, but not with twins.
hi Karle94, I wanted to find the information before I replied to your criticism of the L 28 design.

It was widely believed by the Imperial German Navy at the time that triple guns affected rate-of-fire negatively and so were never perused. Also the preferred designs of the Large Combat Ship; the pursuit of the merging of the battleship and the battlecruiser into a fast battleship could not be built during wartime due to the constraints of the existing infrastructure, which led to the L 27 and L28, these were designed with the limitations in mind by trying to save as much weight as possible while still having a viable warship design.

All the best

Just completed the GK 4541 design study redraw with added plan view.

The drawing is also on the front page with a write up.

Hmm that is begging for many refits given how empty the deck is amidships.
Nice work

Or even a Washington Naval Treaty esque carrier conversion? Thank you APDAF.

And thank you BB :D .

All your opinions matter to me.

I really enjoy drawing these design studies, I can complete the redraw of the GK 4542 but the plan view will take longer, the plan is to complete the side view then move back to the L28 and complete the plan view another time. I want to start (and complete) as many design studies as I can.

I have felt that I have taken too long to get to this stage

All the best

Tempest.

As promised here is the GK 4542 redraw.

Now the I have updated all the drawings I will now concentrate on new design studies, next will be the L 28, 13 June 1918 design study that I have made a start on.

Why this shape in bow (L 21 a and some others)? GK 4542 has convectional bow.

Agreed, the first page post is very informative and the drawings are top-notch quality.
