@waritem, Feyza-i Bahri is both pretty and very convincing, I'm glad you posted her.
Hüdâvendigâr of course looks a lot like the distinctive Matsushimas, but I find her to be very well executed and since she was to be built at an Ottoman yard, what she would've looked like is up to all bets!
The twin 8.3" guns would've likely given her a very serious punch for her size too. The only real gripe I found is that the article says she would've had just 1 shaft, but that would've been odd, wouldn't have it?
I'm glad you like them both.
But most of the credit still goes to the excellent base that garlicdesign gave us.

To me also a single shaft would have been odd (but it was an ottoman design.....). Maybe i should try a singleshaft variant.
In addition i'm quite sure i've found contradictory sources that give it twin shaft, althought i can't find it for now.
I'll check it back Home...........
PS: it seems that the two informations are right:
Hudavendigar would get twin shaft when redesigned during construction.

As i've designed its sister ship with different main guns, maybe i should do both..............
