Re: New Orleans conversion from San Francisco
That's very helpful, thank you. I ask because I couldn't find mention of it on the website. I look forward to future conversions for other members of the class.
BTW, I was also curious, what 3d printer and CAD software do you guys work in? I do sci-fi ships for myself and work in Solidworks and just started using an Elegoo Saturn and a Phrozen Sonic Mini 4k.
Again, thanks for your time.

For the Astoria set, it is designed to work with the 1942 kit TSM5309. Our Quincy and Vincennes kits will work with either as everything from the deck up is replaced and the hull is the same in both kits. Only caveat is if you are planning on using the kit provided AA weaponry, then 1942 TSM5309 is the best way to go.
I have a question about these conversions; which Trumpeter kit are required for each of these sets? The 1942 kit or the 1944 kit?
Thanks for you time,

If an accurate 1942 New Orleans is what you are looking for, unfortunately our Astoria set isn't it. The 01 Deck for Astoria has a different 20mm layout, Astoria's hung over the deck edge whereas the NO did not. The Aft Con is similar but the shielding around the 20mm positions was different. These sets were designed by Red Devil Designs and Kraken Hobbies Prints and markets them. They have another 1942 New Orleans class member in the works, I will see if a New Orleans is on the scope as well.
Does the Kraken conversion on ASTORIA match up with New Orleans conversion from San Francisco?
