In profile they are very 'modern'
Rear aircraft catapult and hangar that could quite easily be a helipad
Small funnel
Tower bridge one could imagine Aegis fitted to
Armament forward, that could be missile launchers (or less dramatically a vertical missile bed)

Kirov class battlecruisers feature a similar layout today.

Does anyone think there is a chance that Hobbyboss will bring these lovely ships out in 1/700? How do the Samek and WSW kits compare?
Many thanks.
