Merger of Battleship Washington with an Arleigh Burke superstructure, no AEGIS though.



And some VLS too.

I do like it, makes you wonder what the US could have achieved with the Iowas with a complete rebuild, not as extreme as the Albanys but retaining the 16" triples and replacing the superstructure.

Washington class, overshadowed by Iowa class and mostly ignored by modelers & public.
Good build of a plausible modernization.  I like it :)

I like it a lot :)
Sickening, weakening
Don't let another somber pariah consume your soul
You need strengthening, toughening
It takes a bit of dark to rekindle the fire burning in you
Ignite the fire within you

Armament mix & layout make sense to me.  Down to 20-25mm on main deck :)
In 60s Renwal made nice 1/500ish kit of Washington.  Never did buy one though was impressed with a friend's build.
