Thanks everyone for the feedback and kind words! I'll make some changes based on the issues brought up.

Small complaint - the CEAFAR mast is necessarily six-sided rather than eight-sided (or more precisely, the angles of the forward and aft arrays are +-60deg rather than +-45deg). I'd fiddle with the mast a bit to indicate it's not structurally identical to the various SPY-1/TRS-4D/etc. variants.
I did make some changes to the shape but in hindsight not very effectively so I'll look in to modifying it better.

Only sidenote on the canada variant.
Smart s and apar in the mast mast is a bit to much.
Plus they are both surface search radars with only the apar being a director and tds.
You also put american directors next to it, the aoar makes them obsolite.
I suggest removing the directors and add a aerial search radar in the place of the smart s.
Or replace the apar for one
Fair enough, do you have any suggestions to replace Smart-S? I was under the impression it was both air and surface search? I didn't want to use Smart-L since I thought it might be a bit overkill for a smallish frigate not specialising in air warfare.

Yes it does Air aswell but its more of a comprimised addon.
But a more dedicated aerial radar would be better and at a different spot even more.
You have to think about cooling. Cabinets and maintenance space.
Smart s also uses hydraulics.
And since Apar is not a cool system but rather hot :)
Thales has a new radar (forgot the name ask Jan maybe) that is derived from the SMILE plates of the I masts.
Its aerial and small.
Uses way less cabinets and is cheaper to.

Thanks! I'll try to re-upload the drawings on the weekend if I don't get a chance before. I think I've got a few other drawings lurking around on my hard drive that haven't yet made it into this thread so I'll add those as well.

I fall in love with Dempster class but I'm ready to cheat it with Cooper. :D

That's a lovely set of additions!
I too, hope to see them all finished as they will really give some depth to your AU fleet.
