the Southampton class was 591.5' oa not 558' as that was her waterline length. https://www.world-war.co.uk/Southampton ... class.php3
will be converting the airfix 1/600 Belfast into the Southampton plus at least 1 ship each of the Fiji, Ceylon & Swiftsure classes. already lengthened & widen 2 airfix 1/600 Ajax into the York & Exeter. in the larger scale I'm kitbashing Revell's 1/429 scale Arizona into the us navy's old battleships from the Wyoming class to the Colorado class.

There is a 1/350 kit of HMS Sheffield by Iron Shipwright:

This is the correct class, you would only rebuilt her to the 1944 fit.

Thanks for the reply. Looks like I will have to save up some money to buy that kit. Really hate to spend that much money but for a diorama of this magnitude I rather have it correct.

Ah, I was going by the only source I found last night which stated 558' as her length.
