Sounds good. Are you a subscriber of Warship International? There is an awesome series of articles in it abot the German Capital ship designs with serioulsy informative commentary. The sequence is only at the Ostfriesland class but there are a whole lot of new (well previously not published) preliminary designs; so I eagerly wait to theseries to get up to these designs. I can only recommend it.

I've just finished the L 2 battleship design study, which was armed with ten 38cm guns, the L 2 was a variation of the eight 38cm armed L 1, which I will be drawing next. Information will be added to the 1st page, along with the drawing and a specification.

Enjoy guys :D

Good looking drawing Tempest, this is fast becoming your 'usual' standard. Well done.

I have done a few AU BB's with the three stack turrets but had never seen the layout on an actual, real/never were, design. Glad to see I am not quite completely bonkers yet.

Thanks Krakatoa. I do like the ten gun design as well.

L 1 battleship design study completed. I'm not sure what I'm going to draw next.

The L1 was armed with eight 38cm guns, sixteen 15cm, eight 8.8cm FlaK, and five 60cm torpedo tubes.

Information will be added to the 1st page, along with the drawing and a specification.

Enjoy guys :D

Had you thought of the Austro-Hungarian Never Weres? They had a lot of BB/BC designs 1916-18. I know a couple may have been done, by Alvama, but there are a lot that have not yet been drawn.
