Very nice attempt at CA-B! I hope once you have done this you will do the CA-C and maybe some of the CA2-x series as well ;).

Keep up the good work!
Thanks, and that's what I was planning on/thinking of doing. Especially once I get the hang of doing this.
As of now I am on vacation so I'm not going to be putting out much if any updates until I get home at the end of this week

here is the current rendition:
[ img ]

I believe I scaled the top view of the ship correctly, however while working on it a bit i noticed that the image isn't actually symmetrical. unless keeping the planes wing when I highlighted all of it changed the center and messed it up some how, if that's the case I could redo that.
as of now, i'm unsure what else to put on the ship to make it more filled up, I know firefighting equipment should be on there some where but idk, I think I will put more 20mms around the deck, but i'm going to have to look at other ships to get an idea of where to put them, since this is a completely hypothetical upgrade.
anyway, i didn't really work on it that much since I just got back from vacation. but it is looking pretty good and it's looking somewhat near completion.

Ok a few things to add (if you need suggestions):

- Anchors, chains, handling equipment, and wildcats on the bow
- Open & closed chocks along the main deck edge
- Cleats
- Vents (mushroom type & others)
- Firefighting equipment (racked hoses, applicators)
- Rope reels (wire rope and regular rope)
- Escape scuttles & hatches on deck
- Floater net bins
- Life rings
- Franklin life buoys (two along the main deck edge abeam the pilot house and the after conn)
- Side lights on the bridge wing (green for starboard, red for port)
- 12" signal lights on the bridge wings
- Pelorus (compass) on the bridge wings
- DAK or regular DF loop between the bridge and the foremast
- Vertical fighting lights (set of three along the foremast and bridge wings)
- Yardarms on both masts with signal halyards running to flag bins aft of the bridge and ahead of the after conn
- Signal platforms (for semaphore) next to each flag bin
- Siren and whistle on the forward stack, with steam feed line running up the front of the stack to it and a whistle pull wire running to the bridge wing
- (More vents)
- 5" practice loading machine (probably ahead of the no.3 turret)
- Lots of small lockers for various equipment (practice ammunition, 40mm ready service ammunition, foul weather clothing, vegetables/potatoes)
- Whip antennas
- Telephone boxes on gun tubs
- More vents
- Trash burner uptake on the after stack
- Screened speed light facing aft on the aft Mark 37 foundation
- Warping winch (probably abeam the no.3 turret)
- More reels (wire and regular rope)
- Side fenders (racked)
- Foremast lighting arrangements (see CL-50 drawing for this)

Lots of stuff to be placed. If you need help on where to put this stuff just consult the CL-50 drawing I linked earlier.
