High guys, does any of you have an SB drawing, or maybe just the reference material to draw it, of the 3"/50 Mark 22 Model 0?
So far the closest I've come is the "wet mount" on Colo's SS-212 Gato and the later mark 24 and 24RF used on post war USN ships.

I believe there are a few of those on the USN DEs from World War II, not sure though.

I have exactly what you need: http://www.hnsa.org/doc/guncat/cat-0100.htm

You can reference other all other USA WWII guns in the same location.

I also draw the the Shipbucket version of the 3"/50 , for example see this:

Any guns over 40mm should have their barrels shown as two black pixels, not one.

Then I guess we'll need to redo the 57mm stealth and all those. :idea:

Yeah, I guess we will. They shouldn't be just one pixel, and I'm surprised that escaped my notice.

It'll be good considering that having seen many pictures and videos of the 57mm, I kept on thinking how the barrel seemed horribly understated.

When I draw 3"/50 for 165ft "A" class I've used original photo, resized to the Shipbucket scale. So the proportions of the gun seem to be maximally close to the original.
But yes, according to SB standards, this gun drawn this way looks smaller than other comparable guns. But I'm not quite sure how to redraw the gun to look more Shibucketish, but preserve the real proportions and dimensions. I suppose I must abandon a little fidelity to match SB requirements and standards?

So the result is this:

Better?

Much better.

The idea here is to get everything within Shipbucket standards, so some loss of perfect detail is inevitable.
