I got sone very helpful advise from someone much more knowledgable than myself, and it seems that A and B are most likely the sonar shack and radio room. I thought that they were too large and that one might be the wardroom but seems I am mistaken. Second opinions welcome.

Thanks. Yes, helpful. I think that 'I' is an electrical cabinet but it isn't so obvious in the plan.

Great, thanks for the feedback. At some point o hope to add the models by others in this thread.

Shame that we don't know more about the other type-XXIX designs.

Wow!

Re the small deck behind the sail, possibly it was much more rounded rather than tapering into a point. But it's one of the features that is harder to determine from the schematics.

Yes that's how I think it is, although it's unclear in the schematics. But definitely not tapered to a point.

Are you planning to render the model? It's incredible btw.
