    Bill,
    Thank you. Any and all help is appreciated. I have not decide which variant to to pursue. They are both terribly interesting. That said I think using a Colony Class hull as a basis is a good start. Beyond that, the super structure becomes a matter of interpretation based upon best guesses. Fortunately there are quite a few armaments available in my working scale so that would speed things up.

    Jonathan.
    As a warship man myself then this sounds a really exciting project and one I will follow with interest from the onset.
    I will start some digging and see what I can find out for you.
    Regards Bill

    Newby7,
    Hold off on your anticipation for the moment. I have not even run the numbers yet and I build in 1/4" scale........She will be a beast if I undertake her.

    No I had not seen that site although I did see one of the images posted on-line when I did a search. Thank you Martin. I find the sources to be important so I am off to see Norman Friedman's work.

    While I am almost finished with my build of the USS Fletcher, DD-445, circa 1942, I have been teased while reviewing my copy of "Warship" Volume 2. In it, Alan Raven supplied a beautiful profile drawing of a proposed 7 turret Colony class cruiser. My two favorite classes of ships from the War were the Dido and the Atlanta classes of anti-aircraft cruisers. This rendition, K25G, together with the 8 turret version, have struck me as the ultimate anti-air "beast" My quest is to find a copy of Mr. Raven's drawing and any other references that my be available of them Thank you for any suggestions and direction.
