Ok, sorry then. I just checked and it is the same ship that seems to give you problems.

At least I got some benefit from this, as I realised that the Operation Monsoon Narvik has the funnels swapped for some unknown reason . The large one should be forward, as in all German destroyers I've seen.

The model in the Soviet Waterways mod has the funnels at the correct positions
I didn't try converting the Typ 1936A model, so I don't know if there are problems. After trying a few other models I gave up converting models from that mod in general. Probably, the Typ 1936A model is fine ... However, since the Operation Monsoon model is the same, one could try that model instead.

Seems you have not been here for a while
Welcome back.

Still modding train simulations or are you returning now to the sea?

I am a realistic person ... if you feel for, check the first models I tried, for example Bellona and Arethusa. They are typical kit bashing models, basically done by "deforming" existing pieces. The results were mixed. From a distance, they do not look too bad but don't come closer ...

I considered several times to re-built them but skipped the idea. They shall remain until someone feels sick enough of their looks and replaces them

Well, of course experience matters, but creating a good model is always a matter of compromise between detail level, vertex count and the time you spend on a single object while many others are badly needed in game (and you start feeling sick of alway turning around the same bits)

I don't think this is going to happen anytime soon

Not exactly

As far as 3D work is concerned, the Wildcat model that I have been working on was basically ready for use since its dowload. I only had to put its part in their correct place and split some parts that I wanted to be separate from the rest.
What is taking time is painting all the possible color variants of the aircraft. US paint schemes are done; I realized there is a problem with RAF camo patterns though. Who created the model made the UV projection of the two wings specular and overlapped, and this is not good for asymmetrical paint schemes. I could rearrange the UV maps, but doing this would entail reworking all the textures I have already painted... I need to device something else to bypass the problem

... but for better comparison of model quality the stock SH3/4/5 Dido might become replaced (if I can revive my interest ...):



... a draft model, prepared late 2015, before I focused on Southampton.

I probably shall give credit to his contribution

I would like to complete another project before. The major obstactle is that the guns are not available:

Gap, if you feel for you may consider to re-create them
