The 76mm doesn't take up any less space lengthwise tahn the 5". Ok, if you really want me to get into the excruciating details about the whys - I need to pack in all the same electronics and support equipment for the SQS-53 into a now shorter bow section, along with all of the other internal volume...

Ok folks, I went back to the drawing board and make some significant changes to the ship design. It is now a dual hangar frigate; the CIWS have been located fore and aft; there is a small stack aft of the main one to accomodate diesel generator exhausts; the entire ship is about a deck shorter in he...

First, again thanks to you for your feedback on my first stumble into your world... Something I always wondered would be what a DDG 51 destroyer would look like as a frigate. The drawing below is what I came up with, making use of the beautiful drawing of the Flight IIA produced by "Mihoshik." The f...

Sure thing - since I went from scratch I know I'm probably out to lunch on some standards; I tried as best I could. I am going to post another drawing that I have just done (separate thread).

The bumpers are usually done in dark grey rather than black. Same with the boot topping. The waterline itself is drawn as a single black line. Also, the upper edge of the bulwark should be drawn in black, rather than the brown you've used. I realize what you're trying to illustrate, but this isn't ...

Welcome to the Shipbucket usna2k. :) Although I don't know this ship, several small nit-picks: You seem to lack contour on screw, I'd suggest using different anchor and "thicker" radar (if it's that "T" thing over the bridge), in some places You have double black line and generally You're using too...

Hello everyone - this is my first post here. I just discovered this site yesterday and thought that the U.S. Naval Academy's training craft, the YP 676 class, would be a great start to introduce me to these drawings. It's not a warship, but every USNA midshipman trains on these at some point during ...
