Ok, hmmmm, maybe the description of these being alternate history designs with some mix and match ideas from the various axis forces implemented fits better then "variants"

Looking forward to how these will turn out.

I thought so!  They're very cool, I kind of draw so insiration from the ships of the Spanish American War to Post WW2 for my own ships.

I draw mostly never-were designs or preliminaries of WW2 Interbellum or occasionally Cold War and WW1 warships

That cool!  I just design starships.

I would like to design them as well but they are more troublesome as require more views, and also I lack time :)

True, time seems to be the biggest problem for most.  For me I have just a little too much, that's why I can design some.  Although Legos are my medium of choice.

Me too used LEGO for quite some time for my creativity:

9.4"/24cm secondaries for design 3? The Radetskys had them, if I am correct.

Tzoli Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Nope, look at the turrets! 24cm is almost as large as 30,5cm and these are smaller.

I really like Design #3 with the twin 5.9-inch Secondary Batteries. Looking forward to seeing it finished.

Has the design been done with Springsharp yet?

Those are not 15cm guns :)

Not yet made a SS (lol!) simulation yet but will make one later and post it for you

My pure guesses is 19cm (in twin turret and casemate) and 9cm secondaries for 2nd and 3rd proposal judging by the barrel length and size different than 1st proposal when i zoomed in.

19cm is correct but not 9cm (88mm) but 7cm (66mm)

Thanks. And if not 15cm then I wonder...

Wow time for the big guys!
But wait a second generation dreadnought with twin funnels abreast? Wasn't this a feature of the ironclads of the 1880s?

Very interesting feature indeed, but wasn't more pratical to redirect the abreast boiler rooms in one single smokestack instead of two smaller ones? It could have saved a bit of weight and made more room on the deck.

Depends on how much space available under deck. Also this way the smoke and fumes effect on the aft mast is reduced as instead of centreline combined smoke from 1-2 funnels you have 2 sources next to each other separated by a moderate space

A preliminary design for the Viribus Unitis class? I don't know of any other dreadnought era designs with paired funnels, except some Lexington class preliminary designs
Reply
:icontzoli:
Tzoli Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes it is.
But not just the Lexington preliminaries had side by side funnels this was proposed for the South Dakota
