To be honest, the North Carolina Scheme A with 3x3 14"/50 and 30+ knots are the one that interest me the most. I've read and thought a lot about these treaty ships and basically if I was designing a 35,000t BB in that time frame I would have gone for a balanced fast design like this instead of pushing for the maximum 16" gun size or for 12 guns. It's more similar to what the French and the Italians actually built than what NC ended up as.

 

Also I generally just like battlecruisers so that ridiculous version of the No.13 with nearly 300m length and 35 knots looks pretty awesome to me too!
