CB-1 Endeavour 2007 (North Point)
This is a sort of tongue-in-cheek "modernized Alaska" made for the North Point / SMSWorld game.  It follows the traditional Iowa-class modernization scheme retaining all the main guns) and receiving various bolt-on anti-ship missile launchers etc.  Phalanx CIWS systems sit at the usual spots with RIM-116 RAM launchers abeam the bridge and on the stern.  A helipad has been added to accommodate Sea Sprite and Cougar helicopters used by the North Point Sea Command.  Modernized electronics have been fitted, with SPS-49 air search and SPS-67(V) surface search radars fitted on the upper works, along with various SATCOM antennas and electronic warfare systems.  Armored box launchers for Tomahawk cruise missiles have been fitted in the old aircraft handling space between the stack and the fire control tower, with a fifth and sixth set of launchers abeam the aft Mark 37 director.  A large refuelling king post (for UNREPing escorts) has been added near the rear of the superstructure.  

In the fiction, this ship serves with a Commonwealth surface action group in the Axackal Sea, launching Tomahawk strikes against Syndicalist targets before providing gunfire support for the Praetonian landings at Baltimore (Operation GLADIATOR).  During GLADIATOR, CB-1 took a direct hit from a Syndicalist P-15 Termit anti-ship missile, jamming its no.3 turret in train, destroying its starboard refuelling post, and killing 14 sailors.

CB-3 Hawaii (1945) - Never-Built
This is a follow-on to a previously-posted version of CB-3 Hawaii, this time as if the ship had been launched in 1944 and survived into 1945.  The only real change between my 1944 version and this one is the repaint into the late-war Measure 22 (which made use of the revised Haze Grey and Navy Grey colors).  A few whip aerials have been added in standard locations.  The OS2U Kingfisher has been replaced with an SC Seahawk with VCS-17 (Cruiser Scouting Squadron SEVENTEEN) markings.

CB-3 Hawaii (1944) - Never-Built
This is a "what-if" drawing, showing USS Hawaii (CB-3) as if the ship had been completed around the same time as her sister ships Alaska and Guam.  The camouflage scheme is Measure 32/7A, which was originally intended for the Iowa class battleships.  I've adapted it to the CB profile which wasn't difficult as these ships were quite similar to the Iowas in layout.  I've taken the liberty to add a few electronics improvements that this ship likely would have been launched with, including the later SK-2 air search radar and a full set of late-war electronic countermeasures equipment (DBM, TDYa, TDY, and sword/derby monitoring antennas).  

Most importantly, this drawing shows some of the improvements made to CB-3 following experience with CB-1 and CB-2:  these include a slightly-modified superstructure ahead of the fire control tower and a 40mm quad Bofors mount replacing a 20mm tub forward of the first main battery turret.  Otherwise the design is nearly identical to the first two CBs.  The real CB-3 was canceled at 80% completion and kept in reserve; later conversion plans included a guided-missile cruiser, an early Polaris ICBM launching platform, and a command ship.  Only the command ship proposal was seriously considered.  Ultimately none of these options were pursued due to costs associated and CB-3 was broken up in the 1960s.

BB-55 North Carolina (November 1942) - Shipbucket
A Shipbucket style drawing of the USS North Carolina (BB-55) in November, 1942.

BB-55 emerged from the summer 1942 Pearl Harbor refit period in the Measure 21 camouflage scheme, with Navy Blue (5-N) on all vertical surfaces. This pattern was considered especially effective against aerial observation. 

It was during this period that BB-55 received the SG surface search radar. The foremast was heightened to allow the SG radar a clear "sight" over the new Mk.3 Mod.2 "FC" radar fitted to the forward Mk.38 director. A second backup SG sat atop the mainmast. Note also the Mk.4 radar added to the aft Mk.37 director - this time with long supporting struts that helped fix the issue of optical interference with the aft Mk.38 director. The aft main battery director retains its Mk.3 Mod.1 "FC" radar. 

The biggest change was the addition of 40mm Bofors anti-aircraft guns, replacing all 1.1" quad mounts. These were directed by Mk.51s in tubs near each gun.
