I wish you luck (and speed) with your endeavours.
I really enjoyed your Town class book (and "Cruiser Birmingham: Detailed in the Original Builders' Plans") - Can we assume that a Fiji class "original plans" book is in the works ?
When you get back to the Brass Foundry look in the GW/Guided Weapons ships covers for some of the highly speculative (i.e. fantasy) thought they had on possible mods to various ship classes post war to convert them to carry guided weapons/missiles ( Ships Cover 789 ).
I like thanking authors - they really keep the interest going (as well, of course, as those poor sods in the archives.
Are you doing any other "Detailed in the Original Builders' Plans" series books ?
