Sigh... this just reminds me how much I need to either update or delete all the old drawings of mine on the site so these Bad Old Parts stop getting used.
Don't Delete >_< I imagine updating would be easier but then again you know more than I do.
The crane you've used is an earlier rendition of the same stern-mounted aircraft crane. The one I was referring to is the amidships boat crane on the BROOKLYN class, or the early CLEVELAND.
Ooops... oh I get what you mean now.
The 5" mounts on the JUNEAU drawing are updated and correctly scaled. They may look like they're "the same size" to you, but a difference of five pixels here and there truly matters and the old mounts you're using are inaccurate. I have gone to extreme lengths to draw the USN parts to a highly exacting level of detail; please make my effort worthwhile by using the correct parts.
oh OH ok, now I see what you mean, I just thought "use guns on Atlanta" but looking at the image you wanted me to look at I know what you mean, they do look different, my bad.
There are also new Mark 38 directors for the main battery guns in the sheets in my signature, same with the SG and SK radar sets. I would also move the radar platforms down two deck levels' worth.
Ok, will do I just didn't get to that because of the time I had took to do the other stuff and I wanted to take a break before I went to bed, and as for the radar the the center of each is just where I know the masts ended on the drawing, because since I went over the drawing and i'm not using Photoshop I can't get it back, i'll just lower them when I start working on this again.
I really like how this is turning out - once the parts are updated it will look quite nice.
Thanks, I hope it turns out great, and I hope i can help out with stuff and get some other ships that never got the honor of gracing the ocean waves out and into the Shipbucket Archive/ship list.
A super-Atlanta...I like it!
what? I can't even imagine what a Super Atlanta would look like without making it top heavy.
I think I would describe i more as a super-WICHITA, with amidships aircraft handling arrangements and a step in the hull aft. Certainly an interesting design that would have looked more graceful than the flush-desk designs that came around in the 1940s.
Yeah that's a better description, and it's one of my favorite Paper designs out of the Spring styles books. i just wish Spring Styles Book #2 never dissapeared
because it would be really neat to see the US naval development from start to finish without having to spend like $100 dollars to buy one of Norman Friedman's books or something similar.
I hope the OP is still reading the thread and working on updates!
yeah I'm still here, I just went to an old Amusement park around here on Wednesday with my family because it was my town's "Picnic" day, so I got to see a bunch of friends too. I didn't really get to do anything today either because my AC is having issues, I had to turn in some job applications, and my washers been broke for ~ a month so we had to go do laundry at my grandparents. I will continue to work on it this tomorrow and this weekend though.
