That's a spectacular picture of the New York skyline with the liners. You should do a large version of it for one of the screenshot threads.

To complete the Cunard superliners serie, RMS Mauretania II might be a nice addition:hmm:


What do you think?

I know it's been said a thousand times, but it'd still be nice to have the Queen Elizabeth class battleships. I think everyone is sick of sinking the Rodney three or four times each career year. It's almost as if people are actively avoiding modelling them - it's not like there's a lack of talent around here.

I want some new Brit warships myself but I am tied up with merchant shipping right now. I have a Warspite model in its very early stages & a nearly complete HMAS Perth/Sydney/Hobart. As soon as possible I'll complete them.

Unfortunately, the QE model in that link is only accurate for 1918 - all, even Barham and Malaya, were very heavily updated in the intervening decades between the wars, radically altering their appearance.








Excellent period document showing the basic differences between the class groupings after refit.














Queen Elizabeth after refit...


...and Warspite after hers. Note the numerous differences. She was the first to be refitted and her bridge structure/command layout served as prototype and testbed for the rest of her class, Renown, and the new KGV ships.

Hope these are of some use. Hopefully they'll inspire you should you go ahead with the design.

Oops, didn't see your message there IABL - those models sounds great. That's about the best of my QE images and blueprints, but if you need anything else, let me know and I'll have a dig around . I only wish I had the talent and inclination to create models myself ("create models" in the sense of 3D modelling, not the Weird Science sense).
