Victim to my own inability to just say "NO" I am currently scratchbuilding a pair of 1/200 scale "D" Class British light cruisers for a friend of mine to go with his Blood Red Skies airplanes that he is using in his Operation Ironclad campaign game. You can follow my progress here link

Hopefully, these can help. Personally, I'd steer well clear of the cruisers with the ramped forecastle, despite its' being a fairly distinctive feature. Itd be a real pain to try and model.

It looks like your off to an excellent start.

They look like they are off to a good start. I look forward to seeing how the two ships work out.
OK, in part this is because I would like to scratch build a couple ships myself, though for an earlier period and in a smaller scale.

Nice start. I am looking forward to their completion.
