1. Not sure that there is enough market interest to pay for the design time. New York class products have surprisingly not been in demand but hopefully the new Trumpeter kit will make all the difference. Since superstructures are big efforts that take weeks full-time to research and design, they are very costly design projects requiring a lot of sales to pay for. If the product doesn't sell, my family eats the cost. Can't have any more of that.
2. earliest New York references I have are the September, 1942 Booklet of General Plans drawings. As you know, photos are generally not sufficient to complete a design. Fully dimensioned 2D drawings such as the BoGP drawings (or even better, builders blueprints) are required. Perhaps a 1942 superstructure is acceptable to the market?
If these challenges can be overcome, then the answer is yes.
In the meantime, cranes and New York fighting tops are added to the queue.
