Re: 12B 25,000t - I don't like your chances...

From the discussion at Raven and Roberts p.151ff, I would be surprised if 12B or any of her competitors went past sketch design outlines (comparable with US "spring styles"). That is, with just enough detail to establish feasibility of the displacement and dimensions for the desired military qualities, so that Staff can choose which of the options they want to develop further. D.K. Brown in "Nelson to Vanguard" suggests that all the 1928 12" designs were quickly discarded as the lead-up discussions prior to the 1930 London Treaty made plain that no other power was interested in retreating to 12" calibre or 25000 tons.
This makes 12B quite different from the case of a "never-was" that was
selected and then intended to be built, e.g. Lion
cl of 1939, or USS Montana
If I am correct, then any drawings are pretty hypothetical and any model even more so, and I think you are going to be out of luck.
Any of you know who makes the British 12B 25,000 Tonner design of the Washington treaty era? Any scale, materiel. Thanks.
