Interesting design, although as drawing it looks bit "bare" (railings, details etc.)

Half finished, but still nice and very interesting.

Nice work, but haddent torpedos essentially disappeared from cruisers by then?
Also, are those heavy AA MGs Bofors guns?

The Swedish Tre Kronors, laid down in 1942 and '44(I think) and commissioned in 1947 mounted torpedo tubes for their entire career(though it was an admittedly very short one).

A very fine ship though. Looking forward to seeing the completed drawing.
