I did some tweaking to the ships and added the Nevada as she appeared in 1920.

That's looks so much better.

Just keep looking at all those photos that you have and keep adding all the little details, that's what makes the difference. It's more important to complete one top quality drawing than to churn out good drawings which lack the details.

All the best.

Very nice work on Nevada 1920, but Nevada 1916 is not showing up at all now.

I have added the Nevada as she appeared in 1927 with a redesigned bridge, glass windows on the bridge and the spotting tops and a catapult and crane added to the fantail.

Another fine addition! (Pennsylvania's misspelled in the titles though)

I've been busting my hump doing the 1927-1930 rebuild of the Nevada. I'm proud to say you can find it on page one.

Sorry for the double post, but I've added the 1941 version of the Nevada. That concludes the story of the Nevada. I will now move on to the Oklahoma.

Edit: I've just finished with the Oklahoma from 1916-1941. It was relatively quick and easy, seeing as there were only minor differences between the two sisterships at any given time.

Edit 2: Just added the remastered version of the USS New York as commisioned in 1914.

Edit 3: Just added the New York as she appeared in 1915 and 1918.

Very good work, your drawing quality has improved tremendously over the past ones.

One small mistake I think that has not been pointed out yet. US BBs (no matter old or new fast ones) had a standard allotment of 3 scout aircraft usually stored in this setup: [ img ]

So two on the fantail cat and one atop the turret top cat. Only exception are the two New York class and Arkansas, which usually shiped only two (later only one) scout a/c sitting on their turret top cats.

The other old BBs gradually lost their turret top cats and therefore shipped only two a/c as well when the relevant upgraded were made.

(The modern fast BBs all had 3 a/c throughout the war).

So the point is no USN BB ever shipped 4 a/c at the same time (if at all).
