Normandie most likely was designed with a float plane catapult but given that Richelieu had it's catapult removed by 1944 Normandie probably never had the catapult installed, and the plane bellow-deck plane hanger was converted into a boat well.

A very nice rendering, although I can't say I'm a huge fan of the design. Would there really not be any AA fit by 1925? Also, how would the freestanding 5/51s be served with casemated guns on the same level behind them? Neither am I a fan, especially not of the plan view layout, nor of the double s...

The following was excerpted from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maximum_battleship The "maximum battleships" , also known as the "Tillman Battleships" were a series of World War I-era design studies for extremely large battleships, prepared in late 1916 and early 1917 to the order of Senator "Pitchfo...

Thanks Brad. I'll revisit the drawings.

These are great to look at, as usual. My only suggestion is for you to delete whatever parts sheets you are currently using, and pull down new ones from the link in my signature. The last couple of drawings you've made have all invariably used old parts (often times alongside their updated versions...

Excellent work as ever. Two other small nitpicks, the top view of Colorado 1926 seems to have two different types of 3in gun next to each other Haste, the enemy of us all. :oops: and the 40mm Bofors near B turret are missing from the side view of Maryland 1943. You're correct, an oversight. :o

First of all, fantastic work! Two comments: For the Nov 1942 USS Colorado as drawn - she appears to have an SK air search radar when she should still have the SC along with the SG for surface search (I can't see it, but SGs are small so I could easily be missing it in all the detail). I believe you...

I'll land two quibbles, not related to the drawings themselves though. The 1932 Colorado is labeled "Tennesse class, USS Tennessee". I also think you might cut the length of all templates to match the mislabeled one. They kind of have a lot of unused space on the right as they are right now. :D Yup...

The West Virginia reconstruction has always been one of my very favorites. Do you know why she had the curious asymmetric AA fit aft? Are you sure the early 3"/23 fit is correct? I believe these weapons should be the 3"/50 Mk 10. I'm Cal at the moment, I only discovered that Colorado was armed with...
