Those are a solid start. I think rockets especially benefit from lighter and darker shading to highlight the curvature of the stage.

Real naval architects are pretty good at what they do, and they generally plan a hull and combat system that are compatible, with neither greatly in excess of the needs of the other. If one thinks they can pack 50% or more equipment than the real thing (the Tigers had two 6" turrets!!!!!!), I think ...

That's a whopper of a question, and there's no concise answer. The long and the short of it comes down to a thoughtful examination of existing ships and a lot of reading, and that's obviously just to get to snarky amateur level. The Naval Institute Guide to World Naval Weapons Systems is a good plac...
