Thanks for posting a "conjectural" what if. I have to shake my head and laugh how conceptual models and drawings of ship designs that were mere specifications only (or no drawings yet located) often elicits negative reaction from many, even in the ship "What If" community. Then I go to sites like "Beyond the Sprues" where imaginations, especially for aircraft models, run wild and you can find beautiful profiles of,say, a navalized Vultee P-66.
I opt for fun. When I do my Type A she will be in a scheme like this.
