One mor thing! Turret top color for the Pearl Harbor versions should not be all red, only for the Arizona! Turret top colors represented BatDiv and position within the division, so there was an individual color code for all BBs.

I've corrected the colors and added the New York as she appeared in 1922 with a metal bridge new directors and 4 more 3"/50 AA guns.

Edit: I've added the New York as she appeared in 1932, a few years after she received a rebuild that converted her coal fired boilers to oil fired ones. 6 of her 5 inch guns were moved from the hull into the superstructure. Her lattice masts were replaced with a large tripod foremast and a smaller tripod mainmast. She also received torpedo bulges and extra armor.

Edit 2: I've added Texas from 1914 to 1922.

I've added the Delaware in 1910, 1914, 1918 and 1920 and the North Dakota in 1910.

In addition I've posted a WIP of the Wyoming in 1912.

I've added the North Dakota in 1914, 18 and 21. This concludes the Delaware class. I am unsure of whether to finish the Wyoming class or start on the Florida class. The new Delaware drawings and some of the ships I made for my alternate US navy thread will come in use for the Florida class.'

As a side note, should I have the ships in ascending order, or decending order as it is now?

I would put them in order of commission, personally.

Question: Will there be wartime versions of the WWII ships as well? Just curious why you're doing mainly pre-war drawings.

I started doing pre and post WWI drawings as there were almost none of them around. Only the South Carolina and Delaware had been done, as well as some inaccurate drawings of either WWII versions, or 1941 versions of a few ships.

Almost half of these ships already have their WWII versions done by other artists, so I won't do too many of those.

About all US WWII Dreadnoughts drawings (1941-1946), it's wrong
Alas, almost all of David-Latuch drawings are wrong (wrong/inacurate dates, majors errors on the light AA config, some WWII versions lacking)...check this ;)

I think sincerely you can draw all US Dreadnoughts in 1941-1946 versions :D
PM me if you want help

I have rearranged the drawings in the proper order (first to last) and added the South Carolina from the Real Life Design challenge as well as the all new USS Florida in 1911, 1914 and 1918.
