Some time ago, we managed (thanks to JFC Fuller) to get some decent info on the proposed 1962 Royal navy Escort Cruiser

https://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,1600.msg184219.html#msg184219

Unfortunately as so often the thread go sidelined into discussions on launcher configurations rather than the key point
of finding a decent artists impression of the ship. We know from the above that one was done. Now we need to find it

I would be grateful if the moderator would not merge this with the previous threads as they got trashed with irrelevant discussions

Only two shipbucket variants are available apart from the sketches in Friedman's book, but I do not know any painting style drawings

Thanks, but these are SEASLUG ships. As I said, I am ONLY interested in tracking down info on the 1963 CF299/SEADART ship.
Again, this does not mean the later 1966 Working Party designs which Shipbucket and Brown/Moore feature.

Another of my failed searches. Somewhere there is an artists impression of the final version of the proposed escort cruiser for the Royal Navy before it was dropped in 1962. To remind, it was to have one, possibly two, cf299 Seadart launchere and a separate Ikara launcher. Hood has done a neat Shipbucket drawing which is the closest I have come.

I think the result is pretty close to the final 1962 ship. Your alternate rn stuff is excellent.
