What great news that you are beginning another steam-and-steel era warship, Mike. I eagerly look forward to your building of this magnificent ship. If I understand you correctly, your are building Connecticut as it appeared when it was commissioned in 1906 and not with the cage masts as in the Image 7 drawing?

That first image is one of the most dramatic pictures of a Great White Fleet warship I have seen. According to the Wiki article, the photography boat was swamped by the bow wave shortly after the photo was taken. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Co...t_-_NH_553.jpg

Bon voyage!
